Open seasonally, Détente specializes in adventurous modern local cuisine and a substantial selection of wines from around the world – owners Kevin and Susanna Crowell have gone out of our way to find hidden gems of excellent value.
Dinners are served either in the intimate dining rooms, on the outdoor terrace – a perfect spot for a quiet meal by candlelight. The full menu is also offered at the beautiful soapstone bar. The offerings change frequently to take advantage of the best in locally grown and raised ingredients.
You’ll find Détente tucked in the back of Nevin Square in the heart of Edgartown, on the right, half-way between Water Street and Summer Street.
Don’t miss: the Local Tautog on tomato cavatelli, asparagus, fiddleheads, haricot vert and blue crab with salt cod bisque; and the Borchetta: wild roasted boar loin in boar belly, with cherries, glazed onions and fregola.
