About Us

Jay & June with daughters Jillian and Mackenzie

Chef/Owner:  Jay Trubee

Jay’s Culinary Institute of America training and travels in Europe and the United States has inspired his imaginative, eclectic cuisine. All pastas, breads, and desserts are made fresh in-house daily. During the fishing season in Nantucket, chef Trubee prepares Nantucket scallops flown in overnight. He is also responsible for their extensive wine list. His love of the art of cooking paired with fine wine and the desire to continually strive for perfection distinguishes Jillian’s.

Owner: June Trubee

June a native of Scotland graciously welcomes you.  It is with impeccable taste and style that June has created an elegant and inviting atmosphere. The four intimate dining rooms are exquisitely decorated with fine antiques, fresh flowers, and a superb art collection. Each room connects into a charming courtyard, magically lit in the evening for romantic outdoor dining.


The Trubees’ attribute much of their success to their loyal staff, with most having faithfully been with them since 1986.
