It's all fresh and crisp inside this homey tavern, with white linen tablecloths covered in brown butcher paper, and when the sun sets and the candles are lit, it's a lovely spot for dinner. Arrive at 4 for the daily raw bar happy hour (in summer); another great starter is the house-made warm ricotta with olive oil, herbs, and grilled bread. Favorites for dinner include the jumbo prawns with Anson Mills grits, chorizo, and garlic spinach; or the 16-ounce porcini-rubbed
NY sirloin with a cabernet sauce. It's a busy and lively place; regulars have their own personal liquor lockers for storing their dinner spirits, since Chilmark is a dry town. A special perk is the free Menemsha Harbor pickup—come by boat and they'll get you here and back to the pier.
