Cape Cod in April
Hi there - my girlfriend and I are in Cape Cod for a long weekend next week.
Was hoping for some recommendations of places that are open in April? Including any good (fish) markets.
We are staying in Brewster but will be driving about a fair bit
We would like one special/upscale/romantic dinner and otherwise enjoy anything and everything with good ingredients and an authentic or unique atmnosphere no matter how casual.
I was on the Cape last weekend and had a good meal at the Roadhouse Grill in Hyannis. the Cioppino was quite good and the appetizers were good as well. The place isn't fancy, but good service and reasonably priced
I make it to Buca's Tuscan Roadhouse about 3-4 times a year. As you say, they are year round --- and I appreciate that. It can be challenging to get some imaginative chow in the dead of winter. And since the OP asked about a romantic choice, Buca does make the list.
However, I find that Buca's tend toward the reflexive Yankee error of confusing quantity with quality. On the ambitious plates, the sauces sometimes just lose their way. I'm thinking of one unfortunate lamb chop who deserved better than to be smothered in gravy. I guess I just don't get excited by the food; I love the fact that I can get a honest cocktail and a good conversation on a snowy evening.
