At Island Kitchen we serve connections, come and enjoy our full service restaurant, ice cream parlor, and cocktail lounge.
We have tried to steadily improve our offerings and physical space over the last 5 years as we support year-round and seasonal island patrons. I am proud of the dedicated team we have built and look forward to serving you with an approachable menu and relaxed environment.
ABOUT CHEF PATRICK
Chef Patrick Ridge started his cooking career at the young age of 14, and was immediately drawn to the sense of community and camaraderie that exists within the kitchen. After receiving his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Patrick went on to complete numerous apprenticeships at two and three Michelin starred restaurants both in the US and abroad.
Previously, he was Head Chef of Le Languedoc and he oversaw the development of Pronto, a high-end store-to-table concept. To broaden his event and business experience, Chef Patrick spent time working as a private chef and has been the driving force behind many high profile catered events on and off island. Chef Patrick has been featured at the Nantucket Food & Wine Festival and other noteworthy island events. Patrick was also accepted at the highly ranked Entrepreneurship program at Babson College where he completed his MBA.
Island Kitchen brings together all of Chef Patrick’s passions: cuisine, Nantucket, entrepreneurship and real estate. When he’s not cooking, Chef Patrick enjoys spending time fishing and conjuring up his next projects.
