The best lobster roll, where you least expect it



he best lobster roll on Martha’s Vineyard isn’t at a five-star restaurant or rustic clam shack. You have to go to church to get it. The Grace Episcopal Church serves standout lobster rolls every Friday afternoon (and some Sundays in the winter) to raise money for church programs. They have no fillers, just mayonnaise and white pepper, and they’re served in freshly baked rolls in the parish hall or for takeout. And with what everything else costs on Martha’s Vineyard, the low price is an answer to your prayers, and includes chips and a drink.


The church is one of a group of congregations on the Vineyard that help provide affordable housing on an island whose housing costs are 64 percent higher than in the rest of the state, propelled by demand for high-priced seasonal homes.
