Nantucket Island is a tiny, isolated island off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but don’t let the small size of this island fool you – Nantucket is packed with culinary experiences all year round.  From fine dining to lobster shacks, Nantucket is known for its diverse food and beverage culinary scene with over 100 restaurants to choose from.

But it’s not just the restaurants that draw tourist to the Island all season long, Nantucket is also known for the Food and Wine Festival held annually in May. For over twenty years, the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival has brought distinguished winemakers and chefs together for a world-class epicurean celebration.
