We made a return trip to Chillingsworth in Brewster. For my money, it's the best restaurant on the Cape. With alcohol, it comes in around $90/person. For a delicious seven-course meal, exceptional service, in a beautiful 300-year-old house, you can't beat it. Having worked there for three summers, the owners, Pat and Nitzi, along with a couple staff members who are still there, are all incredibly warm and generous. It's a permanent part of our summers, and I love it.
We made a wonderful discovery in Provincetown Monday night: Martin House (above). Again, an incredible meal. We both settled on the lobster in orange butter on a slice of polenta and baby white asparagus. One of the best meals I've ever had! Again, tucked in a little corner of Commercial Street, it's in a house of 250+ years. The service was incredible, as was the atmosphere.
Of course, no trip to Provincetown would be complete for me without some ice cream from Lewis Brothers. It's the most popular ice cream stop in Provincetown, but I've heard more and more people complain about it in recent years. Still, their black raspberry with chocolate jimmies is a fave.
My trip also wouldn't be complete without a sausage or meatball sub from George's Pizza. I've been going to George's for as long as I can remember. There's one in Harwichport, and for my father's taste, it's the best pizza around. I'm not a big fan of the pizza, but the subs - to die for! I do love the pizza at Spiritus, though - which we dove into post-bar on Saturday and Sunday nights. The scene there is a bit much - but, it was also where I first told Dan, five years ago yesterday, that I had a strange, wonderful feeling about him. More on that later.
For brunch, Dan's favorite spot is Cafe Heaven, right on Commercial Street. It's a quaint spot with some pretty good food. Though, the Portuguese Sweet Breat french toast I tasted there this time around wasn't so hot.
