Dining & Food

With a soft opening last week, Tin Hanger, where Flatbread once was, is now open for business, daily for dinner. A brave endeavor to open a restaurant in November one would think, but not for this Island family. Jack McGroarty is no stranger to businesses on Martha’s Vineyard. His family owned The Wharf in Edgartown, and […]

The pie’s the limit on the Island for holiday treats. This year, there seems to be an amazing collection of local businesses offering their pies for your enjoyment over the holidays. Like the change in wine from white to red, the Fall brings a change from my love of cupcakes to pie. It’s sweet but […]

I know what you’ll be doing this Thursday – going to l’etoile for $10 short ribs. This amazing Frugal Foodie special is for two weeks only — last week and this week. It is one not to miss. I might even say that this is one of the most amazing deals I have found on the […]

Then when it never reopened because of pipes bursting in the space above it (basically destroying the newly renovated Mocha Mott’s), people […]

Popular Wolf’s Den Pizzeria owners, James Goff and Tanya Chipperfield, are not ones to turn away from opportunity. Not that long ago, they had to chance to open a second Wolf’s Den, where Island Pizza was currently in Edgartown, next to Your Market. Before the call from then owner Lisa Brown Huff, James and Tanya were […]

Now in its ninth year, the new location, the expansive Grand Lawn at the Harbor View Hotel, was close to perfection. The weather was gorgeous, a perfect Fall day […]

Walk up the stairs to La Soffitta restaurant in Vineyard Haven, and you’re immediately in a space that is both cozy and sophisticated. Whether you sit in the dining room, enjoy a glass of wine in the lounge area or sit at the bar (my favorite spot here), you’re going to be amazed by the experience. […]

I love that Fall brings new opportunities for food and drinks. The days of cool salads and icy drinks are waning. I welcome the thought of comfort food and warm, drinks that you hold with two hands, to savor the heat. These are just a couple of reasons why I think that Behind the Bookstore’s […]

Though I was just at Not Your Sugar Mamas in August because of their new cafe opening in Vineyard Haven,  I am back. Not for another amazing and healthy chocolate treat or Dandelion Latte, but for lunch. Not Your Sugar Mamas recently began serving lunch at their organic cafe. Their kitchen I should mention is […]
