Dining & Food

With the summer season coming upon us, more and more restaurants are opening up their doors, shaking off the dust of the long winter break. As with this tradition, so comes another on the Island, what we like to call the “chef shuffle.” Many beloved Island chefs find new creative endeavors for the season which […]

With winter’s grasp finally releasing the Island, and the soon-to-bloom spring talk of what’s new – I decided it was time to quickly visit another iconic Island place that I have yet to try. Shiretown Meats. I drive by Shiretown Meats all the time and am always curious about the food one would find in that little butcher/deli shop, […]

Every winter, we say there’s nothing to do on Martha’s Vineyard. However, we all know that’s not true. Sometimes you have to create your own fun or now — you can head to Loft at Dreamland in Oak Bluffs. JB Blau and his team are at it again, creating a playground for adults where Dreamalnd […]

Though tired of saying this, I wish this Winter would end. It’s the longest, coldest, snowiest I can remember, and my somewhat sunny disposition has turned a little grey. When I heard that the Harbor View Hotel was hosting a comedy night last Friday, I immediately thought that perhaps laughter would indeed be the best […]

Continuing with my Winter quest of visiting places on Martha’s Vineyard that are not part of my usual repertoire, I put on my Frugal Foodie hat and decided to stop by Dock Street Coffee Shop in Edgartown for breakfast. Dock Street has been serving up breakfast and lunch for 40 years. For years, it was the […]

If you’re like me, you’ve driven by Tropical Restaurant in Vineyard Haven at Five Corners almost daily for years. I decided that this was the year, the season, the day to stop in. One craves a little adventure during February on Martha’s Vineyard. Friends have told me it’s really good, but I was skeptical. The […]

These cold nights provide an excellent reason to indulge in a little comfort food here on Martha’s Vineyard. That’s why, when I heard about the amazing fried chicken at Henry’s at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, I thought it it was time for a little Frugal Foodie dining out research. I really enjoy Henry’s but […]

In late September 2014, James Goff and partner Tanya Chipperfield, began a new chapter at Bob’s Pizza & Subs on Main Street in Vineyard Haven. After cleaning and rearranging the kitchen to suit their needs, Bob’s relaunched on October 9th. Things started slowly, but soon, from word-of-mouth, Bob’s was packing them in, especially at lunch!

Typically January is a bore when living on Martha’s Vineyard year-round, but not this year! With events, wine school, and fun new restaurants, this Winter is moving right along. If you haven’t been to Rockfish yet, make a plan to. It’s definitely the hottest spot on the weekends in Edgartown. It’s usually packed on Friday […]
