“Gem of a restaurant-don't miss it!”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

We loved Figs. The atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the fabulous food-understated and perfect. There were three of us: one had the spaghettini and two of us had the cream of asparagus which was light and yet packed with flavor and we shared a portobello and fontina pizza which was the best we have ever had. Then, the piece de resistance arrived-their signature white chocolate bread pudding-delectable.

Can't wait to return-still dreaming about the food.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

This is a great little gem in Nantucket on Fair St. This restaurant is in the building that used to house the Wooden Box Restaurant. This restaurant has Todd English as their designer chef. We had a Great meal there. The fried calamari was perfect with just the right amount of breading (very light) and the sauce Todd used was the best. Not your typical red marinara sauce. It was just GREAT. We also ordered the short ribs. They were so meaty and tender they just melted in your mouth. The brown gravy was so flavorfull it really complimented the short ribs. This is an intimate restaurant basically lit by candle light. Our server was the best and was very attentive. The inside of the restaurant is all wood. The house that it is in is very old. Not sure of the age but old and charming. Plus it is a very close walk from Main St. in town. You can be there in just a couple of minutes walking from the cobble stone main street of Nantucket. I'm sure it closes in the winter months but next time I am in Nantucket it will definitely be on my schedule to have dinner at this wonderful restaurant.
