We spent an enjoyable week in Marthas Vineyard with our son and his wife. Mainly due to his aversion to "dressing Up" we ate at the casual restaurants and diners for the first six days, on the last evening however we mandated a fine dining establishment. To our dismay the first five places we tried to book( using Trip Advisor ratings) were fully booked. Eventually Atria found us a table in their "terace"- really a very pretty open sided pavillion with a permanently tented roof, which on a warm night was preferable to their inside dining room. This is a proper restaurant- the service was efficient, pleasant and professional in contrast to the generally nice, enthusiastic but untrained staff we had previously encountered. The food was also by far the best we had on the island, three of us double dipped on the starters(beef carpaccio and and tempura tuna - the portions of each being quite adequate as an entree), whilst my wife had "The Pig"- a very unusual, at least for us, slow roasted pork shank with a crispy skin and savoury sauce which we all tasted and proclaimed the best, together with a portion- absolutely huge- of truffle oil string french fries. We also had pre dinner drinks and two bottles of wine from a comprehensive and well balanced list , the final reckoning was surprisingly low for what we had and certainly far better value than the lesser places we had previously patronised. Whilst we cannot compare the Atria to other similar restaurants on the island we agreed that it could hold its own in London, Paris or New York, so in the interests of fairness we now have to return to MV to check out the others.
