Opening for the season

The most wonderful time of the year.

Coop de Ville is opening April 20. —Ralph Stewart

Things are livening up on Martha’s Vineyard — have you noticed? Seasonal business owners are dusting off their storefronts, finalizing menu items, and gearing up for another go-around. Maybe you’ve caught yourself daydreaming about favorite seasonal spots, and what you’d order if you were there right now. Many restaurants hold off until closer to Memorial Day weekend, but a fair share of our Island favorites are already open and in the swing of things. The first sign of a nearing summer is the return of seasonal eateries.
