Dining & Food

What does everyone love? Free stuff, and here’s the scoop on where to get some really great free nibbles and have an amazing time. During these grey months, Rockfish knows how to entice people to come out. On Thursday and Friday nights from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the staff serve free passed apps in […]

I sometimes think that people don’t go out to dinner during the winter months for fear of being the only ones in a restaurant. That’s why I love writing our Frugal Foodie series which focuses on some of the best deals, and winter perks with the Island restaurant scene. These nights are usually quite popular and […]

I was able to sit and catch up with The Ritz‘ general manager, Ben DeForest (not a mistake, Ben has been the GM since the Fall). I like chatting with Ben — it’s half motivation speaker (though he may not know it) and half interesting Island happenings. Ben has made a lot of changes in […]

Owner, baker, Sonia DeStefani is no stranger to the restaurant/baking world on the Island. She and her husband Valerio […]

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 […]

When you’re in Oak Bluffs, one of the best, and one of the few places to get coffee is Mocha Mott’s. Last winter, when it closed for renovations, many of us were devastated. Then when it never reopened because of pipes bursting in the space above it (basically destroying the newly renovated Mocha Mott’s), people […]
