l'étoile is vibrant modern restaurant located in an old whaling captain's house on the island of Martha's Vineyard. The menu is seasonally-driven, utilizing native ingredients such as produce, herbs, and berries from local farms and shellfish from the surrounding waters, along with fresh game birds, lamb and other meats.
l'étoile Restaurant was established in May of 1986, located then in the only Relais & Chateau property on the Vineyard. l'étoile moved in 2006 and is now thriving in its fourth season on North Water Street in the former Tuscany Inn. l'etoile's new welcoming and cozy location is highlighted by its casually elegant dining rooms, garden terrace offering outdoor dining, and its stylish bar which offers, in addition to the dining room menus, its own bar menu and an array of specialty cocktails and sixteen wines by the glass.
The Wine List has an extensive selection of French and American wines along with exceptional wines from Italy, Spain, Chile, New Zealand and Australia. A full selection of Aperitifs and Digestives are also offered.
Celebration Cakes creates cakes for weddings and special occasions customized to suit your whims, delight your eyes and satisfy your sweet tooth.
The Caviar Conection is a specialty retail outlet where you can purchase caviar and smoked seafoods served at l'étoile.
