Enjoy your favorite eatery in the fall!

Excellent Blog By Jeannie Sparrow……

We’ve all experienced it . . . long lines at our favorite restaurant, especially during July and August on the Cape and Islands. Are they worth it? For the most part, yes. But when you visit this area in the fall months, chances are there will be no line. The kids are back in school, the air is a little cooler, and the crowds have subsided. It’s time to eat—so come ‘n get it!

The Monsta Lobster Roll. What more needs to be said about the Falmouth Raw Bar?! With its location right on the harbor and serving some of the tastiest seafood and libations around, it’s no surprise that this restaurant is packed all summer long!

There’s a reason why Arnold’s Lobster & Clam Bar of Eastham has been around for over 40 years—they serve up some delicious, award-winning seafood! Known for a line that wraps the building in the summertime, the less-crowded fall is the perfect time to stop in.

The only true oyster bar on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, a visit to 19 Raw Oyster Bar is a must during the fall season. Oysters are at their peak this time of year, plump and sweet, as they prepare to go dormant for the winter.

Self-proclaimed, “the finest fried seafood anywhere,” the Kream ‘n Kone restaurant has been serving incredibly tasty fried seafood since 1953. Enjoy plates of fried clams, fried shrimp, fried seafood platters, and more as you sit by lovely Swan River.

Oh, those expansive views of Provincetown Harbor are unbeatable! Fanizzi’s Restaurant by the Sea is a local favorite, serving Italian and American cuisine, and specializing in yummy seafood. Perched, literally, on the water—it’s no wonder this restaurant is so popular!

Waterfront views of Hyannis Harbor, occasional live entertainment, and an amazing menu featuring everything from seafood to prime rib, The Black Cat Tavern is the place to be, no matter what the season! Fall is the perfect time of year to enjoy their heated patio as you nosh and watch the boats sail by.

After 50 years in business, the Chatham Squire has definitely earned institution status. From their famous clam chowder to their classic fish and chips, a trip to this part of the Cape isn’t complete without a stop in at this family-style, fisherman-friendy haunt!

Built on a dream and a secret recipe, Sam’s plan was to “offer the very best local seafood available and serve it with friendly, fast service at reasonable prices.” Located in Sandwich on the Cape Cod Canal, Seafood Sam’s has been around for over 40 years serving lobster and fried and baked seafood.

Mouthwatering Dish

Robert and Gail were testing some of Brian’s breakfast creations at The Old Manse Inn and gave a two thumbs up!

Baked Egg Florentine w/ Hollandaise Touch

Taking some liberties on the standard Florentine recipe, I combined the fresh eggs with a mixture of cottage, feta & paremesan cheeses along with a healthy sampling of vitamin-rich spinach. After it came out of the oven piping hot, I added just a spoonful of warm mustard hollaindaise to the top to spice up the taste buds!

Yummy Dishes

Today’s Special Breakfast Dish:

Curacao Fruit Splash

This new recipe actually tasted better than I think it looks! The tasty chunks of banana, apple, orange & pear are doused with a warm mixture of juices, brown sugar & just a hint of orange curacao. The fruit just bathes in the juices until cold & ready to serve!

Pumpkin Nut Belgian Waffle

This is another newbie to the breakfast collection –and what a great way to test out the new double waffle maker! Add some pumpkin puree & toasted pecans to the usual belgian waffle recipe, serve it with fresh & hot blueberry compote and you have something truly UNusual! It’s the nuts that make it the ‘tastiest’ I think.
