Must Eat Stops en route to Cape Cod from NYC
I am driving up to Cape Cod (Wellfleet) from NYC. I will be taking I-95 to I-195 to US6. Does anyone have any suggestions for top eating spots that should not be missed? It can be anywhere along the way or even out of the way if it's REALLY worth it! Thanks!
Get your seafood shack juices flowing at Lenny & Joe's in Westbrook(exit 64, I think)- some of the best fried scallops I've ever had- sweet as candy, just this side of undercooked, and almost no batter.
Once you get to Wellfleet, say hi to the Wicked Oyster and Moby Dick's for me til I can get back in Sept. My last trip in May seems very far away right now!
may i suggest you skip the freeway and take the ferry instead? the route takes you through montauk, with a zillion farmstands and wineries with all kinds of fabulous places to stop and grab something delicious. its also a beautiful drive.
you don't really save or forfeit much time because you don't have to drive on the ferry. having done it both ways, i opt for the ferry unless i'm in a big rush.
Thanks everyone for all the suggestions! I think we're definitely going to try Lenny & Joe's, Pepe's, and Abbott's... YUMMMM...
Wicked Oyster & Moby Dick's here we come!
