A killer burrito from an unexpected source

ho’d have thought you could get a great burrito—that’s good for you—on Nantucket? Well, that’s what makes the Big Mean Green Burrito such a secret. For one thing, it’s served up at the Green, a coffee, breakfast, and lunch spot that doesn’t look like much from the outside, but on the inside features fresh-made and hot-baked sandwiches and other treats, with an emphasis on healthy, organic, and natural. For another, the Big Mean Green Burrito is packed with all things (good guess!) green: cilantro pesto, guacamole, grilled zucchini, and spinach, grass-fed beef, salsa verde, cheddar cheese, and sour cream, all rolled into a whole-wheat wrap. It will make you forget lobster rolls and chowder. Clements

Along with Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket tried unsuccessfully to secede from Massachusetts in 1977 when its representation in the state Legislature was reduced.
