Provincetown, The "Outer Cape" and Wellfleet Too

interesting to see caldo verde on a festival menu - does the area have a large Portuguese population - or is kale just sexy now?

 

 

There is a large Portuguese population on the Cape: Provincetown in particular.  Sometimes you will hear people speaking in Portuguese near the fishing boats.  Probably so the tourists cannot understand what they are saying :-)

Another season, more Cape Cod food. I am currently in Chatham for work, but will be in Wellfleet soon (not soon enough). Next weekend I will be in Provincetown, and then back in Wellfleet for the 4th of July week and again in October for Oysterfest. A return to the Impudent Oyster.  Salt cod "tater tots"

"Low country grits" with shrimp and scallops and roasted tomatoes  and an okra which I ate.  I have never eaten okra before.  This pickled one was pretty fine.  I shall leave no comments regarding the grits.

More Chatham dining. Breakfast at the Captain's Table. We were the only people in the restaurant other than staff so I left my camera in my bag and used my phone.  This is still slow time on the Cape and it is rainy to boot.  

 

Omelet with bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese

Breakfast was takeout from Chatham Cookware.  Strange name and I am sure there is a backstory but I don't know it.  Egg bacon and cheese sandwich on a Portuguese roll, with an iced tea (unsweetened, lemon)

Yesterday for breakfast we went back to the Captain's Table.  Roasted jalepeno omelet

 

5932cf4827fc8_jalepenoomelet.thumb.jpg.c1f1aebfa21416fd75c21878bca3adff.jpg

 

and then it was goodbye to Chatham and hello to Wellfleet.  Here's the view from the house we are staying in

 

IMG_4249.thumb.JPG.40059a1dca3dbfe85415f5b707232836.JPG

 

No lunch yesterday, because my husband and I were going to dinner at my favorite restaurant on all of Cape Cod: Ceraldi.  

 

https://www.ceraldicapecod.com

 

Everyone eats the same meal at this restaurant--when you make your reservation they ask for any allergies or preferences, and they will tailor the menu to fit your needs.  I always say that I prefer a pescatarian meal.  My husband eats anything.

 

First course: Loagy Bay petite oyster, garden arugula pesto.   Paired with 2005 Domain Haut Bourg Muscadet de Grandlieu 'Origine'

 

oyster.thumb.jpg.318b59cf2248ec509300e24f62dd430e.jpg

 

Second course: Wild one year pickled lotus tempura, poppy seed, invasive green crab brodo, In the Weeds farm greens.  Paired with 2014 Leduc Frouin Anjou Blanc5932cf585d613_lotustempura.thumb.jpg.a155a754403efc1dccc0f70aadfe99fe.jpg

 

Third course: Longnook Meadow Farm panisse, speck crisp, spiced walnuts, Great Hill Farm Blue buttermilk dressing.  Paired with 2012 Agricola Querciabella Batar IGT (my salad had pickled onions subbed for the speck)

 

5932cf6aacde5_panissesoeack.thumb.jpg.18f7a0e2e0961670f47e7fe349f9afab.jpglettuce.thumb.jpg.3f2ed9434063798b76336853365aaad1.jpg

 

Fourth course: Seawind Meadow Farm meatball, Parmigiana Reggiano fonduta, balsamico, truffle potato stick (my course was beet ravioli instead of the meatball)

Fifth course: Chequesett Chocolate risotto, Hillside Farm mushrooms, rosemary, matsutake ricotta creme, cacao nib.  Paired with 2014 Cantine Aston Grangnano DOP

 

5932cf3f96290_chocolaterisotto.thumb.jpg.6ebbcc5c6348d4603089126ea44d9d02.jpg

 

Sixth course: Donna Marie Boat scallop, saffron burst allium ash ravioli, chive blossom, garlic chive and wild seabean chimichurri. Paired with 2006 Radikon Ribolla Gialla IGT

Last night we had dinner at an old favorite, Mac's Shack.  We went out with my whole group, so lots of meals to share.  A couple of cocktails, on the left is a Mrs. Mia Wallace (Farmer's Gin, Aperol, lemongrass, lemon, soda), on the right a Nesky (Patron Silver, Grand Marnier, sour, lime, extra salt):

It is a very close choice between the lobster enchiladas (be still, my heart!) and the rainbow on the beach. Both gorgeous. I covet both of them.

yesterday we went to a late lunch/early dinner at The Beachcomber.

 

593587c7bd9e9_beachcombermenu.thumb.jpg.263b5f7294f6a91efea1cf4208f33572.jpg

 

Margarita and a Goombay Smash

 

593587b09da9b_beachcomberdrinks.thumb.jpg.ffeb3cdfc082d7f85a623dea4a3f56c0.jpg

 

My niece just wanted mozzarella sticks

 

593587ab55e83_beachcobermozzarellasticks.thumb.jpg.eff2c1a75e5340279450a6af7ff3d8f4.jpg

 

The Beachcomber has a separate fryer for their french fries, so my nephew ordered a basket

 

593587bd90e29_beachcomberfrenchfries.thumb.jpg.81cd8371e127c6fa58131156a44d9f1b.jpg

 

along with a jalepeno-onion pizza on a Boboli crust.  The things teenagers will eat...

 

593587d214075_beachcomberpizza.thumb.jpg.ee72074e0f5794f74da1df40f1fe5fc6.jpg

 

The adults all had seafood.  Steamers to share

593587a784298_beachcoberfishwich2.thumb.jpg.c157d73729ee229f106298f9eca8590b.jpg

 

 

And three adults chose the oyster po boy--it was huge!

Most people went home last night, so it's just me, my husband, and my nephew out on the Cape now.  We went to the Wicked Oyster for breakfast this morning. Tall stack of pancakes with real maple syrup

This morning we stopped at the Fairway in Eastham for breakfast on our way off the Cape.  Husband had an egg sandwich which I forgot to photograph.  I had the potato pancakes with poached eggs, bacon and toast

So yesterday for dinner we returned to Local 186.  I don't normally repeat restaurants, but my brother and his girlfriend joined us and they both have extremely limited palates, so burgers work for them.  Drinks

Last post for this visit.  We did not get to Pop + Dutch @weinoo but I'll be back for 10 days next month so I'll go then.

 

Our last dinner was at Mews.  Seafood sampler

swordfish special. The light was really dim so hard to take photos.  Other things ordered were lobster vindaloo and a lobster-sea scallop dish
