ucked away behind the Nantucket Yacht Club, Sayle’s is a local treasure specializing in fresh seafood, with a gorgeous view of the harbor thrown in for good measure. It looks at first more like an aquarium than a seafood store, with a huge tank of live lobsters and crabs at the door. But that’s just an indication of how fresh this stuff is. You can take it home to fry, broil, boil, or grill yourself, or get prepared foods to go. Try the fisherman’s platter; fried fish, scallops, and shrimp paired with a hearty helping of crispy fries, a cup of Nantucket clam chowder, and cole slaw. Pass the tarter sauce! Clements
