The Oran Mor Bistro Bar is Nantucket’s premier fine dining spot. The upscale restaurant was established in 1996. Its founders have since sold the business to Edwin Claflin and Jon Tancinco, who have maintained the original line of operations the business was founded on – serving gourmet cuisines and beverages in an exclusive fine dining setting.
Co-owner Edwin Claflin is the restaurant’s main Chef, while Josh Patsos is the Pastry Chef.
Oran Mor is at 2 South Beach Street in Nantucket Downtown’s Historic District. The eatery is housed on the second floor of a home-turned-restaurant building accessible via copper stairs and has street parking slots.
The premise features a full bar and a trio of dining rooms. A royal color combination of green and gold highlights the restaurant’s theme. Wall art, candle chandeliers, and wood flooring accentuate the warm-colored interior. Oran Mor sources artwork from Nantucket House Antiques and the Antiques Depot. Customers impressed by the artwork may inquire about quotations of similar art from the diner.
Customers in groups of up to six have tables set with seating that combines opposite-facing chairs and sofas for ease of movement for customers.
A new dining room is scheduled to be opened within 2023 to cater to groups of customers exceeding six.
The balcony area has extra tables with seating for two, and its green theme is accentuated by living flowers surrounding the metal railing.
The upscale Bistro Bar opens seasonally. Oran Mor announces season opening dates on its website and social web platforms. The restaurant employs a reservation-only model. Customers can reserve tables via Oran Mor’s website or third-party booking providers. Bookings are accepted within 30 days before the set season opening date.
