Watch a harbor sunset as you dine at Nantucket resort

The anchor of the menu at the the White Elephant resort’s Brant Point Grill might be the fresh lobster dinner, but patrons also rave over the Pineland Farms all-natural steaks and lobster mac and cheese that is not to be missed. The menu at the Brant Point Grill, known fondly by Nantucket residents and return visitors as BPG, is a seasonal delight, the dishes artfully prepared and presented by attentive staff. (Second only to dinner is the bountiful Sunday brunch.) And the setting is a worthy backdrop to the meals: The White Elephant is right on Nantucket’s picturesque harbor, so while you dine, inside or out, you can watch the sailboats glide and the sun set across the water.
