Modern and traditional Mexican intermingle both on the menu and in the atmosphere of Nantucket’s Corazon del Mar, transporting guests south of the border. Chef de Cuisine Ivan Cecena, protege of established island restaurateurs Seth and Angela Raynor, is cooking the food of his heritage, bringing it triumphantly into the realm of contemporary cuisine. His Sweet Corn Tomal with Queso Fresco and Huitlacoche Ragu is a plate full of summer. The natural sugars of the corn expertly balance the salty cheese, buttery avocado, earthy huitlacoche, and the bright pop of cherry tomatoes. Rough-hewn wooden shutters (they used to be floorboards!), Mexi-kitch knick-knacks, and a long, low bar for casual drinking and dining make this a place to come back to again and again.
