Boston chef couple moved to Nantucket?
Does anyone know about, I think, a chef couple (husband and wife) who used to work in Boston, but then went to Nantucket and took over an old restaurant. I can't remember their names, or the name of the place they went to. Does this sound familiar at all?
And, of course, have you been and is it any good? :o) Thanks.
Straight Wharf has always been a great restaurant; but under Gabriel and Amanda, they opened for the first time for lunch and brunch. It was hands down our favorite lunch spot- simple, creative menu and everything delicious. we ate there at least once a week all summer. the bar menu had less choices than in the past, but we loved everything we had. only ate once in the main restaurant at night, with a big group, but heard positive reviews all summer.
both chefs are great people and seem to work really well together- they are very enthusiastic about the place!
as usual the bar scene is rocking all summer, a little too packed for us on weekends, but our favorite place during the week. i think they are closed now for the season, but try it next year!
Amanda Lydon and her partner Gabriel Frasca are the new owner/chefs at Straight Wharf on Nantucket.
Here is info on them from the Nantucket Wine Festival site.
I have not been to Nantucket since they set up shop but I was a big fan of Amanda's food here in Boston.
