Last week was Restaurant Week, a Nantucket Annual Tradition, and it is one of the greatest traditions this island has! Nantucket has the best collection of restaurants I have ever known…and Restaurant Week means 4 course meals for cheaper prices. So, how could we not participate?!

My mom and I decided to have a Mommy-Daughter night at one of our favorite restaurants: Ventuno!



We sat in Holly’s House, a little room with a bar, where our friend, Holly, bartends. Isn’t she just the cutest?


And then we enjoyed a fabulous dinner of….

A St. Germain and Soda for my mom


Fried olives stuffed with sausage and Chickpea fries with tomato condiment & yogurt to start


Griddled focaccia with mozzarella, oven-cured tomatoes, green olive, picked red onion & caper and Strozzapreti pasta with sausage, broccoli rabe, and parmesan cheese


Grilled Nantucket scallops & shrimp, cauliflower, pinenuts, caperberry & lemon and Grilled prime sirloin, heirloom polenta, spinach, & cherry pepper agrodolce


Bittersweet chocolate filled doughnuts, espresso gelato & chocolate sauce and Lemon tart & blackberry gelato for dessert


We were so stuffed by the end, but it was far beyond worth it. If you find yourself on Nantucket, this is the place to go for dinner! A-ma-zing.


The company was pretty good too…I love you, Mommy!
