Lobster rolls!

3 of 4 stars (good, casual dining).

(see explanation of ratings below)

There are two great reasons to go to this place:

1) their lobster rolls.

2) their bread.

Have you ever had a fastnacht? That’s what they serve you (as “bread”) when you sit down at Nantucket, but they don’t call them fastnachts.

The word Fastnacht originates from the German words “fast” (to abstain) and “Nacht” (night) indicating the eve of the traditional Lenten fasting period observed by many Christian denominations. It is the equivalent celebration to Mardi Gras or Carnevale.

A fasnacht is an English name for a fried doughnut served traditionally in the days of Carnival or on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent starts. Fasnachts are made as a way to empty the pantry of lard, sugar, fat, and butter, which are traditionally fasted from during Lent. Also, fastnachts are eagerly eaten as a way to “fatten up” before beginning your fast.
When I was growing up in southeastern Pennsylvania, we had fastnachts with our school lunches. Most chain supermarkets in eastern Pennsylvania sell fasnachts. In parts of Maryland, the treats are called Kinklings, and are only sold in bakeries on Shrove Tuesday.

The German version is made from a yeast dough, deep fried, and coated or dusted in sugar or cinnamon sugar; they may be plain or filled with fruit jam. Pennsylvania Dutch fasnachts can often be potato doughnuts, and may be uncoated, dusted with table sugar, or powdered with confectioner’s sugar.

Anyway, I think it so odd that a place which attempts to “…capture the essence of the New England-style cuisine…” serves these tasty treats year-round. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these things in New England, but -—then again-— I’ve only been there three times.

They recently changed their bar specials (for the worse): gone are the days of half-priced beer and wine bottles on Thursdays. Now, it’s just $5 off bottled wine.

Somebody needs to clean the glass display case in the bar—-It’s dusty!

Could qualify as fine dining if not for the plastic water cups.

About my ratings:

Only fine dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food and “fast-casual” (no table service )

2) casual and “polished casual” dining (table service)

3) fine dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, typically more expensive than casual dining)

Fine dining can earn a max of five stars. Casual dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

Not sure it's worth the price

My family and I have been to Nantucket several times. More than not, the food has not been up to par with our expectations. Most recently I ordered the Seafood Ravioli and it was way too salty. But on the other hand, my husband had theā€¦
