We now understand why 21 Federal is known as the best restaurant on Nantucket! Every single dish was a treat for the senses. The talented Chefs truly understand how to put flavors together that the average person (or even skilled foodie) would never consider. Figs, fennel pesto, pickled rams, parmesan pudding, eggplant tapanade, king salmon, soft shell crab - this and more all prepared to perfection. We inquired about the masters in the kitchen and were not surprised to learn all three Chefs plus several interns reign from the best of the best - the CIA. Save room for the beautiful and delictable desserts. For a meal you will never forget, 21 Federal is an absolute must.
