There’s no need to wait until summer for a little taste of Nantucket. Chef Chris Freeman of Topper’s at the Wauwinet Inn hits the mainland this month for a series of dinners starting on March 10th at Le Soir. Freeman will be joining chef Mark Allen for a five-course prix fixe dinner. The $95 price tag for the evening may be a little bit more than the cost of the ferry but at least you won’t have to battle Cape-bound traffic. Call Le Soir directly at 617.965.3110 for reservations. You can also catch up with Freeman at the Federalist on March 11th and then at The Parkside in Providence on the 12th.
