A summer spent on Martha's Vineyard inspired the look and feel of this gourmet takeaway, a labor of love for former Chez Panisse pastry chef Charlene Reis and her husband Paul Alberstam — who left a gig as executive chef at Hotel Vitale's Americano Restaurant to focus on this quaint purveyor of fancy-restaurant-quality meals meant to be eaten elsewhere. Menus change monthly, but always include meat entrées, pasta, pizza, salads, sandwiches, and side dishes. Picnic provisions include fried Fulton Valley chicken and grass-fed Hearst Ranch meatballs. Topping it off is Blue Bottle coffee and unapologetically indulgent desserts such as chocolate-caramel tarts and lemon-meringue cupcakes.
