With its wood shingles and exposed beams, Straight Wharf’s lofty dining room and deck perched on the piers are one hundred percent beach-easy Nantucket. The menu, however, is more New York City than New England island. Chef Mayumi Hattori’s Zen sensibility extends to the refined platings that blissfully marry art and naturalism. Despite an early introduction to food at her grandmother’s knee, Hattori was a relative latecomer to the industry, leaving behind a position in retail management to pursue a culinary degree. Taking a page from the books of her mentors, Chef Alex Scrimger and 2006 Rising Star Chef Gabriel Frasca, Hattori’s flavors are pure and unmanipulated. Her contemplative style celebrates product and is a measure of her own promising talent.
