Down Island is the second restaurant for the Celestial Group (Adam Jaime, Doug Abdelnour, Dave Gaffy, and Steve Ansara) which owns sister restaurant, 20 By Nine, on Kennebec Avenue, Oak Bluffs. Down Island is also on Kennebec Avenue. However, you […]

Ah Breakfast, the most important meal of the day they say. So, I guess it’s a good thing that The Newes from America Pub has brought back breakfast. Actually it’s better than a good thing because there are some really good signature dishes on the menu. What really caught my eye was the Popover Egg […]

*Update – Article 30 was passed at the Oak Bluffs Town Meeting on April 12th. Now, High Tide needs to apply for a special permit, but things are looking positive! A couple of years ago, two friends were hanging out one night at Port Hunter, enjoying the amazing cocktails there and spirits used to make them. […]

From craft spirits to pizza places to beer, people are embracing what they’re passionate about and turning it into businesses.

It’s funny how I sometimes forget that some places are open in the off-season, like Isola in Edgartown. Not the the dining room, but the pizza place, next to Espresso Love. Since the Frugal Foodie will be soon coming to an end with Summer approaching, I thought I’d try to give you a couple more […]
