Heather Restaurant Mashpee - No Heather?

Heard rumor that they lost their namesake and chef -- no longer working there. Anybody been there lately -- has menu changed? food any different?

  1. Went to Heather yesterday afternoon - sat at the bar and had three great appetizers and some wine. Lobster/scallop ravioli was excellent - very rich wtih cream sauce and a loose green ravioli - almost like a manicotti. Husband had the crab cake which although not as hot as we'd like, was very good. Had a mustard-y sauce under the cake which was a different take. Shared an order of the crispy fried asparagus - delicious and piping hot! I didn't care for the sauce as it was olive-based but would definitely order all three again.
    No sign of Heather but didn't think to ask. Menu was very similar to our last visit over the summer.
    Offering a 3-course prix fixe for $23 from 4-6. too much food for us yesterday but plan to go back and give that a try.

    1. Heather is gone. Replaced by a place called Simmer. Haven't been yet. Menu is ambitious, price points similar to Heather. Heather's old website brings up Simmer

          Wow, tthat didn't take long. But It did seem to me that area of Mashpee is oversaturated with restaurants.

            Also I think that location is hard for a high end restaurant. A more casual place might be better.

              My wife and I had a delightful meal at Heather's--excellent service and ambitious menu--back in the summer of '08 during our usual month-long stay on the Cape. After we finished we spent a while explaining to each other why this place wouldn't last. Not the best location and no signage on Rte. 28. Of course when we return this summer Heather's was gone. Thank goodness Bleu has managed to stay in business in the Marketplace area; whether Bleu or Contrast we've always enjoyed our meals there.

                Word has it that the folks that own Coonamesett Inn are going to open a new restaurant in this space in April.

                  I drove by it today and there was a coming soon sign, but I forget the new name. It was seafood oriented.
