An Icon Reinvented

The Pearl heralds its return by paying tribute to its legacy of modern Japanese coastal cuisine set in an elegantly vibrant space. The dining room, patio, bar and private dining rooms are boldly redesigned to reveal a transformative space that is breathtakingly new but comfortably familiar. It is a beautiful encounter between legacy and modernity.

The Pearl is reborn.

The passion and perseverance of the former owners, lives on in the second generation of the beloved Pearl in the heart of downtown Nantucket. The keys have been passed on to help recreate the magic of the time-honored restaurant. Its swoon-worthy culinary and ambience are familiar.

With its pioneering spirit intact, The Pearl borrows from its past, while dancing into its future. It sings tales from its seafaring journeys, which inspire the menu and its considerable interior design transformation, which is thoughtfully crafted with soft hues, plush seating, and inviting textures.

The nostalgic sensibility of The Pearl invites you to experience all that is new, and revisit the legendary bar that boasts warm and welcoming, equally as legendary, bartenders. A familiar face that you want to spend time with as well as drink the latest inventive libations.

Stay into the late evening for a bit of magic and unapologetic fun.


The Pearl preserved signature favorites from the original menu and evolved it to include some new stand-outs. The original Wok Fried Lobster still plays a starring role.
