Frugal Foodie

Molto Bene – very good, is definitely how I would describe the food at La Soffitta in Vineyard Haven, and now in its third year, I would say this Italian restaurant has found its boschetto (groove). When you walk in, you almost forget that what the space looked like when it was Le Grenier, which is […]

On many of these cold days, folks can use a little cheering up, and a lunch date can do just that. Slice of Life in Oak Bluffs has great lunch options, and is open for lunch Tuesday thru Saturdays. During the off-season, Slice offers a $10 lunch special. On this specialty menu, you’ll find a couple […]

We can all agree that there are a number of restaurants and takeout spots on Martha’s Vineyard. With that, sometimes it’s fun to create your own little “foodie”outing. Starting at one place for apps, diner at another, and perhaps even a little dessert elsewhere, even al fresco. One way I like to kick off an […]

I think that people sometimes forget about The Terrace Restaurant at The Charlotte Inn as a dining option. Perhaps because it can be perceived as too fancy or too expensive. However, that is not necessarily the case. The Terrace at The Charlotte Inn is open almost for the whole year, and has really created some […]

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 […]

Now I am not necessary a buffet fan, but there are those instances that change your mind. I recently discovered one — the buffet on Sunday nights at Copper Wok. For lunch and dinner, Copper Wok offers an all you can eat Chinese Buffet, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., for $10.99, and from 4:00 p.m. to […]

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 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 […]

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 […]
