Best App on the Island? Nantucket Bay Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

My #1 overall favorite appetizer on island is the Nantucket Bay Scallops wrapped in bacon from the Lobster Trap. While it may seem verbose, it’s worth calling out Nantucket Bay Scallops over other scallops to differentiate them.

They’re smaller than sea scallops, they’re sweeter and a truly unique Nantucket delicacy that I’ve seen often imitated, but never duplicated in taste. Insider tip is that you’re instantly identified as an outsider if you pronounce scallop with a hard “A” instead of the “AH”.

You can even get them at Cisco Brewers from their food truck!

Nantucket has been a constant in Quinn’s life since he was born, but it was working here through high school, college, and beyond that fueled his love for the island. A native of nowhere, Quinn was born in DC, grew up in Chicago and Cleveland, and earned his degree in Economics at Colorado State University. Working summers on ACK at Nectars, various bars and restaurants, fishing boats, and building homes he got a “real job” working in the financial sector for a year when he got a call from Fisher co-founder, Cam, who offered him a job at Vineyard Vines. Starting off in sales and developing the direct-to-consumer business, Quinn was then recruited to run sales nationally for johnnie-O which was still in its infancy. He opened and ran the sales office from Greenwich, CT for nearly a decade consistently delivering results. Recognizing early on that no one wants to be sold anything helped Quinn differentiate himself in sales roles as someone who finds the best outcomes by achieving mutually beneficial results. True partnerships rooted in communication, honesty, integrity, and loyalty are the hallmarks of his work ethic. Quinn lives on Nantucket with his amazing wife, Graham, three beautiful daughters and their lab mix, Rhody. He enjoys spending quality time with family, racquet sports, fishing, biking, and is trying to find enjoyment in running.
