Salt air. Raw, briny oysters. Crisp, chilled wine. There’s no better way to usher in the summer season than with an elegant seaside meal on New England’s quaint Nantucket Island. For this special Friends of James Beard Benefit, host chef Erin Zircher and her colleagues have crafted a menu as lovely and refreshing as the ocean vista itself.
