Nantucket Seascape

Few summer pleasures are lovelier than a seaside meal of raw oysters and a glass of crisp, chilled wine. At Nantucket’s Cru, you can indulge in this ritual all year long. Executive chef Erin Zircher, a French-trained alum of Oleana and the Boarding House, oversees a Mediterranean-inflected menu at this striking oceanfront oyster bar.
