An Evening in Nantucket

Topper's at the Wauwinet entertains in style
From the Jul 31, 2014, issue

The Wauwinet has been hosting parties on the eastern edge of Nantucket since the elegant Victorian inn opened in 1875. The festive tradition continues, with small gatherings and weekend-long weddings for which guests reserve the entire hotel. Regardless of the scale, speak to staff at Topper's, the Wauwinet's Wine Spectator Grand Award–winning restaurant, and you will be told they feel they are entertaining in their home every day.
