At this, the best place for dinner in Nantucket Town, Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon (hot young chefs from Boston) specialize in unfussy preparations of local, seasonal produce and seafood. A single bright-pink prawn floated on top of sweet pea soup and a dollop of curried panna cotta is almost too pretty to eat (but too delicious not to); panko-crusted halibut fillet, fingerling potatoes, and tender baby artichokes strike a perfect balance of salty and sweet; and the crowd-pleasing Clambake combines buttered lobster with sweet corn, chorizo, and littleneck clams. The wainscoted dining room with a huge print of a striped bass is pleasantly summery, but when the weather's nice, reserve a table on the back porch, crack open a bottle of Spanish verdejo, and linger over dessert while the sun sets over the harbor. Lunch is served in the bar and on the front patio on weekdays, and brunch is offered on weekends, featuring ricotta pancakes with Nantucket blueberries.

Open mid-May through September.
