Cape Cod Restaurant Weeks

Last fall, we took advantage of Cape Cod’s Restaurant Week to sample a couple of new-to-us restaurants and revisit a few old favorites to check out their new menus. Longtime friends, Jerry and Joann, came along for the ride on this tour de force for professional eaters such as ourselves. For $25-$35 per person we dined on sumptuous offerings from the Roadhouse Café one night and the hearty fare at the Old Yarmouth Inn another. Entrées were prefaced by a soup, salad, or appetizer choice, and summed up with yummy desserts. It was a gastronomic affair that went easy on the pocketbook, so we were delighted to learn that Restaurant Week will be returning to the Cape in May, accompanied by similar affairs in Sandwich and Provincetown. If you are looking for a reason to come to Cape Cod from now through the 27th of the month, trying great restaurants at a significant savings would be my hands-down favorite excuse. We sure didn’t have to twist Jerry and Joann’s arms to encourage a return visit to the Inn during Cape Cod Restaurant week.

The gustatory celebration in Sandwich runs from Sunday, May 16 through Friday, May 21 and includes a sampling of pubs, diners, family restaurants, casual and fine dining establishments. To preview their special menus visit their website.
