Winter recommendations in Provincetown?

TimTamGirl Jan 12, 2013 02:07 PM

My fiancée and I are going to P'town next weekend, and are looking for lunch and dinner recs. Casual is fine for lunch; dinner can be casual or formal, but we need to keep it under $100 for two, including wine. We'll have a car so can travel, but would prefer not to have to drive more than 15-20 minutes each way.

I know our choices will be a bit limited at this time of year, so suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks!

    I've never been disappointed with Napi's and I know that they are open year-round. I love the diversity of the menu and they make a killer Bloody Mary. It's pretty casual and the prices are very reasonable (even with a glass of wine or two!)

      Jimmy's Hideaway is great. It's quite cozy so perfect for a winter dining experience. http://www.jimmyshideaway.com/

        Agree totally with dordalina. We've been enjoying Napi's for many years. It's not great cuisine, but it's consistently good. And the atmosphere and decor are totally unique. They're open for lunch in the offseason only to cater to permanent residents, which is really nice. Have a wonderful weekend!

          Don't miss Karoo Kafe for lunch!

            As with many of my faves, Karoo Kafe is closed for the season.

            On the weekend this time of year you will find Ross Grill for dinner, also The Mews, Jimmy's Hideaway, Lorraine's and Fanizzi's. You can get a good to excellent meal at all of these (plus Napi's as previously mentioned) Not sure who's open for lunch other than Fanizzi and Napis.

            So, where'd you end up?

              Jimmy's Hideaway 'cause two years ago we had a great experience there. Just so friendly and delightful.

              We love Provincetown -- especially in the off-off seasons. Our other fave time is Halloween.

                You have got to go for the Provincetown Carnival....not always for the faint of heart....always a wild and crazy time. Last year's theme was Space Aliens (see attached photo). This year the theme will be Viva Las Vegas. Off season is really nice. I'd second Napi's as a reliable year-rounder.
