Nantucket Restaurants


The Pearl

The Pearl Review

With its white onyx bar illuminated a Curaçao blue and its walls awash in flowing voile, this ultracool space—a sophisticated upstairs cousin to the Boarding House—would seem right at home in South Beach. The cushy white-leather banquettes tucked behind the aquarium are the power seats. Chef-de-cuisine Liam Mackey delivers on executive chef Seth Raynor's enthusiasm for the bold flavors of Asian cuisine, especially in its streetwise guise. You may have a tough time choosing between the beef barbecue with piquant Thai chili-lime sauce and the signature wok-fried lobster—so do yourself a favor and order both. Asian-themed restaurants often disappoint in the dessert round, but not so here. Pace yourself for some esoteric dazzlers such as the mascarpone-and-chèvre cheesecake with cherry syrup and beet sorbet.
