Atria Burger Nights Return

How do you like your off-season? Rare, medium or well done? Better yet, how about with caramelized onions and cheddar? Atria has begun its burger nights, an integral part of its Brick Cellar ambience that continues all winter long. The Cellar offers a happy hour menu starting at 4:30 p.m. and a full dinner menu at 5:30 p.m.

The upstairs is open on Fridays and Saturdays for those who want to remember what life tasted like during the summer.

Atria Chefs Say Secret to Summer Menu Is Simple: Fresh, Local Food Tastes Good

“Summer in a dish,” Christian Thornton says of the Seared George’s Bank Scallops and Summer Heirloom Tomatoes dish he and his team prepare, a variation of the seared scallop dish on the menu at Atria on Main street, Edgartown. The restaurant’s chef and owner says this dish is all about simplicity, “You want to let the tomatoes speak for themselves. It sounds corny, but it’s about paying homage to what it is,” chef Thornton explains.
