Frugal Foodie

Sundays are usually quiet for restaurants this time of year. Not the case at the Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company (ChoCo). It’s busy. Why? Sunday Bloody Sunday, where you’ll find The Classic burger is only $4 from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., then $5 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. How crazy is that? It’s a […]

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 […]

Last Sunday was the type of day you dream about in New England, when Winter is coming to an end. It was warm, sunny, the birds were chirping, and Martha’s Vineyard was bursting with the songs of the new season to come. Also,  it’s the unofficial day for brunch.

For this Frugal Foodie, we ventured to Henry’s at the Harbor View Hotel where you can find some of the best (and most delicious) dining deals on the Island during the off-season. As soon as I heard that there was Taco Tuesday, I was in. If you’ve watched the Lego Movie, you know why it […]
