Chef Austin Racine of State Road - Biography

West Tisbury, MA

August 2013

Serving skate, rabbit, and soft-shell crab to start, this island favorite in West Tisbury finishes strong, too, with familiar desserts inventively tweaked and modernized as with a Rhubarb-Banana Crostata with Butter-Milk Ice Cream. State Road’s Chef Austin Racine and Pastry Chef Rose Sarja make a diligent and popular back of the house duo. In the front of the house, husband and wife owners, Mary and Jackson Kenworth, former owners of Sweet Life Café, greet every guest at their beautifully renovated house with three dining rooms and raised garden beds out front for use by the chefs in back.
