Restaurants : Restaurant Week M.V.
Already popular in cities such as Boston, New York, and San Diego, Restaurant Weeks are designed to get people out of the house for dinner, offering reduced prix-fixe menus. The debut of Restaurant Week Martha's Vineyard, starts Sunday, June 21 and runs through Thursday, June 25. The event is sponsored by The Martha's Vineyard Times, Chamber of Commerce, Martha's Vineyard Online, the Vineyard Gazette, MVY Radio, and Plum TV.
Several restaurants have their menus ready, while others have announced they will participate. The Black Dog Tavern offers a three-course meal for $45. Choose between New England clam chowder, the soup du jour, or a mixed greens salad; a gorgonzola encrusted beef tenderloin, herb roasted chicken, or mustard crusted salmon; and fudge bottom pie, mousse bomb, blackout cake, or blueberry pie.
L'etoile's $39 three-course meal is a choice between sugar snap pea soup with crème fraiche or warm baby spinach salad for appetizers; citrus-roasted Cornish game hen or braised boneless short ribs for entrées. Dessert is a two-chocolate mousse parfait with Godiva caramel liquor.
Up the street at Chesca's, enjoy either lobster bisque, clam chowder or a non-seafood soup, house or Caesar salad for starters. Entrées are ratatouille and goat cheese ravioli, chicken marsala, or grilled salmon. Add the dessert of the day. All for $30.
