Massachusetts Best Restaurants 2011

Net Result,
Vineyard Haven
Best known as one of the Vineyard’s top fishmongers, Net Result also sells seafood plates to go. The sushi menu is an embarrassment of local riches, with sushi and sashimi all made to order from the freshest catch. Call ahead to order a box for a picnic at the beach. Entrées: from $10. Sushi: from $5.95. 79 Beach Road. 508-693-6071;

Smoke ‘n’ Bones Bbq,
Oak Bluffs
The slow-cooked smoked barbeque here replicates Southern styles with finger-licking results. Best bets are the baby back ribs and the slabs of Memphis-style spare ribs–served on plates big enough to share. On-premise eating is at picnic tables next to the shack, an area affectionately known as “the boneyard.” Entrées: from $15.95. 20 Oakland Ave. 508-696-7427;

Summer House Restaurant,
People go to Nantucket to get away from the mainland hubbub–and to ‘Sconset to escape busy Nantucket Town. Between the flickering candlelight, vases of fresh flowers, tinkling piano music, and zesty regional cooking, who wouldn’t fall in love? Entrées: from $19. 17 Ocean Ave. 508-257-9976;
