The Nautilus Nantucket

The dinner menu from Chef Liam Mackey is focused around unique and vibrant, small plate offerings as well as large multi-person “feast” selections, all with an eye toward engaging our guests with both the food and with each other. The Nautilus thrives on this concept of sharing more than being “cuisine” specific. While we are very much a New England restaurant with a coastal/seafood base, the inspiration is well rooted in Asian flavors and ingredients of the haute street food variety, taking ideas from the traditional Japanese izakaya type establishment, and has a major nod to the tapas style of Spanish cuisine, with additional influences from mainland Asia and Latin America.
