Provincetown, The "Outer Cape" and Wellfleet Too

Recommended Posts

Last night we celebrated our anniversary (one day early) with dinner at Ceraldi.  I just love this restaurant.  Every year the food gets better.  The meal is a seven course tasting menu with your choice of beverage pairing--soft, house wine, or reserve wine.  We did the reserve pairing.

 

Menu with complimentary glass of prosecco

 

177699172_ceraldimenu.thumb.jpg.846403430f80f6fd3a04b3c797f68a1a.jpg

 

First course, Lucky Lips Loagy Bay oyster, horseradish petal, finger lime, olive oil.  Paired with 2005 Domain Haut Bourg Muscadet de Grandlieu 'Origine"

 

1595630869_ceraldioyster.thumb.jpg.31ead18ac6f6c9162afafb5aeca2c857.jpg

 

Second course: arugula, radish, farro, pistachio garden green goddess.  The farro was crisped and added an incredible texture to the salad.  Paired with 2016 Domaine Sainte Lucie L'Hydropathe Elite Rose

 

1169730831_ceraldisalad.thumb.jpg.96633f1fed3e024376026001a9300745.jpg

 

Third course: Smoked mackerel, pickled bamboo, daisy greens, rye crisp, chive blossom and creme fraiche.  Paired with 2016 Azienda Agricola Denavolo Dinavolo.  This was probably my favorite course of the evening.  The flavors were just incredible and the wine pairing was brilliant.  They were very interested in our thoughts on the wine as many people don't like orange wine, but I thought it paired perfectly with the smoky, pickly flavor of this dish

 

1281648585_ceralidimackerel.thumb.jpg.49f9f68b5867cc9f56f1236ccc50957d.jpg

 

Fourth course: garden fennel ravioli, asparagus butter, Provincetown lobster, pink pepper, wild spruce tip, paired with 2012 Domaine Paul Jouard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru

 

738051_ceraldiravioli.thumb.jpg.59f29576b6d8ecf189449f9043dc7c20.jpg

 

After the runners brougth out our plates (and after I took this picture) the chef realized the asparagus butter was missing from the plate, so he came around and added it (plus an extra ravioli) to everyone's plates.  The flavors were great without the sauce, but the asparagus butter really took it over the top.  I have not eaten lobster in over 30 years thanks to an unfortunate childhood overindulgence of it that resulted in my getting violently ill.  After last night, lobster is back on my menu!  Yum.

 

Fifth course: Snowy Owl coffee arancini, cacio cavallo, Parmigiano Reggiano fonduta, culatello (cured by the chef).  Paired with NV Fattoria Moretto Lambrusco Grassparossa Fizzante Secco D.O.P.

 

1311535703_ceraldiarancini.thumb.jpg.02b24ae777d1cb77dc508cadc9633569.jpg

 

This was incredibly rich but I could not stop eating it.  The sauce was decadent.  I was completely stuffed at this point with two courses to go.

 

Sixth course: polpattone, shiitake, wild bolete potato stick, black garlic agro dolce, wild dead nettle. Paired with 2012 Azienda Agricola Massolino Barolo Sarralunga d'Alba DOCG.  The chef's young son made the meatballs.  He came around to the tables after to ask how we liked it.  Very cute 🙂

 

1693098859_ceraldipolpettini.thumb.jpg.67ad88a50da82e07ad773555d7598e69.jpg

 

I do not eat red meat, so the chef prepared the dish for me with a slab of celery root as a stand in for the meatball.  It worked really well.  I especially appreciated the bitterness of the nettle against the richness of the black garlic sauce.  I could not finish this dish though I tried very hard

 

1173141640_ceraldiceleryroot.thumb.jpg.830fa835be16dbfb40f0e4b517624fe7.jpg

 

Dessert course: Chequesett chocolate mousse and nib, Wellfleet sea salt caramel, vanilla whip, matzutake white chocolate.  Paired with 20 year Ramos Pinto Tawny Quinta do Born Retiro.  At this point we were both very full, so opted to have one dessert boxed up and we shared the other.  That was perfect.  My nephew was most appreciative of the dessert we brought home.

If you are ever out this way, I highly recommend Ceraldi.  It is a perfect restaurant for a special occasion.

Very interesting meal.  Thank you for the detailed description.  I am curious about the asparagus butter.  Was it cooked asparagus whipped with butter?

I would describe it as mild peppery but nothing like the searing heat you get from the root.

Yes, exactly that.  It was bright green and absolutely delicious.

 

Last night we went to Mac's Shack.  Drinks, left to right, the first was mine and it's not on the online menu so I can't recall the exact description but it was called an Assam Palmer  It was basically lemon vodka blended with Assam tea.  The middle drink is a Gin Spin (Hendricks Gin, fresh cucumber, basil and lime), and the right is an El Mezcalito (jalepeno and citrus infused tequila, mezcal, lime, and a chili-lime salted rim)

Last night we checked out a newer restaurant in Wellfleet, the C Shore.  It opened two years ago, I think.  Drinks: a spicy margarita, a raspberry lime rickey, a lavender Tom Collins, and a blueberry mojito

Onion rings with horseradish aioli.  Nephew was happy because he could eat them as there were no fried crustaceans on the menu

 

cshorerings.thumb.jpg.5615540addb347c9fcdff1dd8de95cf2.jpg

 

Three little pigs devoured by the teens.  It had carmelized bacon, some sort of sausage, pork belly, cheddar honey biscuits, and some sort of slaw.  I did not have any of this but the kids loved it.

We are down to four people from seven, and last night my brother was not feeling well, so just three went for dinner.  My husband and I took our nephew back to Winslow's Tavern at his request.  It is so quiet out in Wellfleet right now.  Other than one table just having drinks, we were the only people on the patio.  It will look a lot different when we come back at the end of the month!

Is there no fowl for our beloved nephew who is allergic to shellfish?  Or does he prefer beef?

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

@liamsaunt, I have meant to say this for some time, but your food photography is absolutely gorgeous. As for your meals (especially that last one you posted), well, my list of superlatives runs short. 

 

But I am loving enjoying them vicariously.

He only likes chicken in certain preps: shawarma, burritos, parmesean off the top of my head.  He likes most vegetables and beans are his favorite food so cooking for him at home is easy.  Restaurants are harder but we muddle through 🙂

Because he wants to eat you 🙂  Just kidding.  Sharks do not want to eat people of course, they want to eat seals.  We have a huge seal explosion here because they are protected.  Sharks come for the food.  Any people bitten are collateral damage--they don't like the way humans taste.  A young man died last year after being bitten while surfing so it's a serious concern.  I will swim in shallow water on the bay side but will not go in anymore on the ocean side and that is a personal choice.  Everyone needs to makes choices that work for them.

and a sunset from the beach.  That's it. Until three weeks from now when I come back to a different location on Cape Cod.  More home cooking on that trip for sure.  See you on the Dinner! thread 🙂

Our last day in Provincetown, biblically pouring in fits and starts.

 

We started off here, the new hipster AWOL Hotel, which used to be a crappy motel (The Inn at the Moors), but always had the most amazing view of yes, the moors or the marshland at the very, very tip of of Provincetown...

After a couple of nights there, we moved over to our favorite, the Red Inn (which had been fully booked until last night), where the views are of Provincetown harbor, and where the water laps up right to the deck at high tide...

A quick trip into Wellfleet and Mac's on the pier yielded this for lunch yesterday...

A lobster roll for Significant Eater (with that dreaded lettuce). For healthy me, broiled scallops, steamed veg and rice.  There are like 7 - 8 delicious scallops in there, which would probably cost $200 in NYC, but that plate was all of $21.

 

Dinner at Fore Street a few nights ago was fine. I liked these soft shells, which were on special...

And last night, dining at Nor' East Beer Garden with a few local celebs (okay, the owners of Pop+Dutch and a chef from Nor' East Beer Garden), meant a groaning board of various bites...

A little Mediterranean flavor, all quite good, and easily the best cocktails in town;  good beer list too.

 

Yes, Pop+Dutch closes at 4 PM...sorry about that.  I did have a Rainey sandwich there the other day (deviled ham and pickles on white toast, an ode to nana), and we'll load up on the way out of town tomorrow.

Our last evening in Provincetown started out with me, by myself (as Significant Eater was on a business call), heading down to the breakwater/moors area to meditate. If anyone thinks I meditate, I don't, but this certainly wouldn't be a bad spot for it. I hung out for a while, contemplating the universe...it's really big.

Since the local relatives are in the food biz, many of their friends are as well. Fisher people, cooks, servers, etc. So we went to dinner at niece/nephew's home, where we were cooked for.

 

These came out of the water (from exactly where, I don't know) a few hours prior:

A fantastic razor clam ceviche, prepped by a friendly local chef. A few nights prior, we had a knockout scallop ceviche prepared by the same guy who provided these clams, as well as the large black sea bass:

Grilled, (scales on to keep it moister than possible), stuffed with bay and lemon. It was great. There were also Jonah crabs, grilled focaccia, stuffed and grilled Italian sweet peppers, and a rhubarb dessert mit schlag. I brought a couple bottles of wine, some other legal stuff was consumed, and a great time was had by all.

 

It was sad leaving, as we'd had a wonderful 4 days at the end of the world. But,

Rosie was happy to have us home.
