Like snowdrops, some Martha's Vineyard restaurants are making an early appearance on the seasonal scene.
Today marks the long-awaited reopening of the Artcliff Diner in Vineyard Haven, last year's Patch Readers' Choice Award winner for best breakfast on the Island.
According to Guinevere Cramer in the Point B Realty blog, the Artcliff also has a new chef, Teddy Diggs, who formerly worked at the Homeport and Beach Plum Inn.
This is the 70th year of operation for the Artcliff, which now also has a food truck, Cramer writes. Contact the restaurant at 508-693-1224.
Also reopening today: The Scottish Bakehouse, back from its winter break.
Another Patch Readers' Choice Award winner, the Lambert's Cove Inn and Restaurant has opened its doors for the season, announcing oyster nights on Thursdays, a three-course meal for $30 on Fridays and "Dinner and a Show" Saturdays. Call 508-693-2298 for details and reservations.
Shiretown Meats will reopen March 4, according to a sign in its door.
Café Moxie in Vineyard Haven and The Wharf in Edgartown remain closed until mid-March. (See .)
State Road Restaurant posted on Facebook, "We will be back on March 28th."
