"New" is not usually a word associated with the foodie scene on Cape Cod in the off-season, but there have been a few developments of note. (A few of these may be late summer doings as I've been out of commission for a few months)
Brazilian Butchery: The Brazilian Grille next door has opened a small specialy market on West Main St featuring some very fairly priced meats. Just had a yummy NY Strip steak, cut to order for only $8.99 per pound.
Misaki: The Bento is back! (albeit Tues.-Fri. nights only from 4:30 - 6:00). This fabulous special features a chef's whim of terrific quality, copious quantity, and superb value. A must try.
Amari's: Under new ownership! Haven't had a chance to try it myself so I can't say if the food has improved any (and there was LOTS of room for improvement). I'm hoping a chef change coincided with the new ownership. Anyone have a report?
Starvin' Marlin in Brewster on 6A. This has ben a tough location in the past with many failures but the word so far is this is a worthy Chow spot. Would love to see a recent report.
Mooncussers Tavern- Harwhichport at the former site of the Circadia Bistro. This is one I'm very excited to try. The tapas and regular menu lookss very enticing, and the head chef was formally from 28 Atlatntic. We need some reports!
Also of Note:
The Asa Bearse House is undergoing the most extensive renovations in 40 years. I was surprised to see, however, the sign out front proclaiming, "Coming in Spring 2012....A Brazilian Steakhouse. Hard to believe Main Street really needs another.
Barnstable General Store: After a few years of total neglect and decline, new owners purchased the entire property in the heart of the village for $1.5 million. Presently they are doing a total rehab and have gut the interior. I'm excited to see what planbs they have to renew this place whose previous owners let run down to such a degree.
As usual, my posts are Mid-Cape -centric. Anyone have something "newish" to report feel free to add it here
