Greetings from Martha’s Vineyard!

by Susan on August 5, 2008

I’m currently on Martha’s Vineyard where sun, lighthouses, sand, picture-perfect homes, and good food abound. Below, in lieu of a NYC restaurant review, are some eating highlights from my trip:

“Salad the way the chefs eat it” at Alchemy in Edgartown. A typical salad dressed with vinaigrette is topped with mashed potatoes and potato chips! Strange indeed, but also oddly good.

Fried clams from The Bite in Menemsha. A tiny roadside shack serves up every type of seafood – all via the fryer. The clams were excellent and the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of white wine and the sunset.

Brunch at the Art Cliff Diner in Vineyard Haven. An extensive and scrumptious brunch and lunch menu is served until 2pm. Eggs Benedict with avocado, arugula, and tomato was divine. Hash browns covered in cheese, chives, chopped tomatoes, and sour cream gave us energy for our day’s bike ride.

Breakfast at Among the Flowers Café in Edgartown. A charming courtyard sets the stage for eggs, crepes, french toast, waffles, and any other breakfast food you can imagine, all served on paper plates and consumed with plastic utensils.

See you next week in NYC!
