While we were in Martha’s Vineyard, we tried to explore all parts of the island even if it was just for a couple of hours. We took the bus over to Vineyard Haven to check out The Black Dog Tavern. The restaurant is right on the water so we sat there and enjoyed a great view before we ordered. Luckily we have similar tastes so I knew I would get a sample of whatever Z ordered. The Crab Cake Sandwich was out of this world!
It was filled with more crab than the average sandwich. It was topped with a lemon dill aioli that added a nice tangy zest. I’ve never had such meaty crab in my life!
I ordered the Seafood Fra Diavolo.
The combination of salmon, lobster and mussels in marinara sauce over parpadella pasta was excellent. The marinara sauce although advertised as spicy definitely was lacking the punch I expected. Nevertheless, everything I ate was incredible. I loved the crab cake sandwich and really enjoyed the seafood fra diavolo. The Black Dog is more than just a tavern. They have a café, bakery and even a general store. I scored a nice pair of sweatpants from the general store. After all fall is around the corner.
