The Coogan family, owners of the nearby Wharf Pub and Restaurant, plan to open a restaurant named Rockfish at 11 North Water street in downtown Edgartown.

It was a short run for Edgartown restaurant Eleven North, which closed for business after several months of tension with the town over issues including flooding and handicapped accessibility.


Edgartown selectmen Monday turned down 11 North restaurant’s proposal to make the restaurant wheelchair accessible, with selectmen and town officials saying they didn’t like the plan to use town property for a wheelchair ramp and chastising the restaurant for not dealing with the issue earlier.

Eating for the ice, that’s what’s happening on Wednesday, March 20 at Eleven North in Edgartown. As part of the kickoff “Raise the Roof” campaign for the Martha’s Vineyard Ice Arena, the restaurant is donating 20 per cent of the proceeds of a prix-fixe, three-course meal to the arena. The cost for the dinner is $35.


Just as many dining options across the Island are beginning to close up shop for the season, a new restaurant in the former David Ryan’s space on North Water street opened last month with every intention of serving the year-round population.

The goals for new Edgartown restaurant Eleven North are simple: keep it local, keep it fun and keep it open year-round.

With a “casual downstairs” and “a little more chic with more New York city and Miami” upstairs, the restaurant hopes to please a broad spectrum of patrons for both lunch and dinner.
