it was lunchtime when i arrived in Menemsha – what luck! it occurred to me that it’s that time again to start enjoying a summertime favorite – the lobster roll. as i started to pass the menemsha fish market their sign “lured” me in…lobster roll & clam chowder – $15 – i was hooked! if you go to the Vineyard this summer you MUST go get a lobster roll from the menemsha fish market – might have been my best yet!!! the chowder was awesome too. the owner announced they ship lobsters around the world and threw in a couple of bumper stickers to boot!
it’s still shoulder season on MV so an afternoon beer looking over the harbor wasn’t as easy as you’d think. gladly i went to a year round staple – the wharf – where i had a beer at a make-shift ms. pac-man table. there was no room at the bar since this pub is a local favorite – i took a couple of hours getting to know a few – what a great time. i may never have had this much fun in a such a brief time on the Vineyard!
DINNER & DRINKS –
i should also mention that i had a great dinner at henry’s hotel bar in the harbor view hotel. they made a great cocktail – which is key for me! later i headed to the atlantic – they also have a generous pour and a great bar scene – definitely worth a stop if you are near Edgartown.
