Oysters in Wellfleet

Pat Hammond | Sep 27, 201111:53 AM

Last Saturday I visited Cape Cod for the first time. Lunch was at the Bookstore and Restaurant in Wellfleet. it's a very nice space, across from Wellfleet Bay. On nice days there's outside dining. The menu has lots of seafood options and the Salade Nicoise was one of the nicest I've seen. The tuna wasn't canned, but a nice hunk of fresh tuna. My companions enjoyed that.

I've always thought that Wellfleet must be to oysters what Ipswich is to clams, but never thought I'd be sitting overlooking Wellfleet Bay ordering those oysters. Best oysters I've ever had, harvested out front that morning. The Bookstore manager told me that. (The Bookstore is a whole other (off topic) story. The liquor in the shell was divine, the oysters plump and almost sweet in a salty kind of way. I'll dream of those oysters. So for my main course I had oyster stew, also excellent.

50 Kendrick Avenue, Wellfleet
