Best of Cape Cod – In Celebration of Restaurant Week

Simon Hunton -


This time of year on Cape Cod is an epicurean’s delight as we weave our way from region to town in pursuit of the perpetual repast of restaurant weeks; the feast kicks-off with the Cape Cod wide restaurant week on 16th May which is followed immediately, to avoid any gluttony-withdrawal systems,  by Provincetown. Focus then shifts to Wellfleet and Nantucket the week of 6th June and then summer is officially welcomed with the mouth-watering Harwich restaurant week starting 13th June (we still have some availability at The Platinum Pebble if you want to indulge!).  A final burst, like the belt of my trousers, ends the summer when the feasting returns to Nantucket at the end of September.
