Enjoy Fall Dining


October 21st, 2013

Nothing's better after a long day on the road or touring on foot than capping it off with a delicious, fulfilling meal and drink at one of our delightful restaurants!

Chef Devin Gilroy sources all seafood from local Cape fishermen and runs an in-house butcher program.

After two years in town, I finally discovered Jimmy's Hideaway, which was a delightful treat for me. Owners Jim McNulty and Raife Menold have created a fun, relaxing and classy take on the friendly neighborhood pub/restaurant. From the minute you walk in, you receive a big smiling welcome, and find yourself surrounded in subtle lighting, happy faces, 50s vocalists and smooth jazz on the sound system!

We were pleasantly surprised by the sliced ciabatta bread and garlic-lemon hummus brought by Danny, our waiter. All through our visit, he was pleasant, knew his stuff, and was attentive without being intrusive. To start the onion soup was “just right”, and the apples in the Bibb salad were crisp and tasted just-picked! Jon's Filet Mignon Au Poivre had a bold flavor with just a touch of a fiery aftertaste, Tim's Jerk Rubbed Rack of Lamb took my taste buds to the sunny Caribbean with its savory jerk flavor and slight peppery bite, and his Au Gratin potatoes were as good as grandma used to make! I had the Salmon Wellington, which was a lavish piece of salmon, wrapped in spinach and a traditional puff pastry, served with flowery Basmati rice, grilled asparagus and an out-of-this-world Dill Buerre Blanc sauce!

Are you craving a traditional Italian dinner in the middle of town? You'll find it at 9 Ryder Seaside Dining. They feature fresh local seafood, hand-cut veal and beef in recipes from southern Italy and the Isle of Ischia.
Everything is made to order, from the antipasto, to the veal piccato sauteed with butter, white wine and a luscious cream herb sauce, to the chicken breast sauteed with prosciutto, mozzarella and Madeira wine.
Seafood choices include baked flounder stuffed with shrimp, clams, herbs and bread crumbs and a brodetto made with mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops, and fish in a marinara sauce over pasta. Just like meals I ate at my grandmother's house!
Choose from a lovely collection of wines from Italy, France, Portugal, and California, unique martinis with names like the Funeral Director and Drury Lane, and specialty cocktails named after local regulars (like “The Billy Evaul”, in honor of the local artist). You'll enjoy a delightful meal, great value, and a lovely harbor view as well.
An added bonus? They have chocolate mousse cake for dessert! A popular dinner spot for tourists and locals alike, it's run by long-time locals Francis and Muffin Ray Iacono, and chef Fred Hemley!

The Central House at the Crown and Anchor
just switched to a new fall menu, which includes dinners priced at $28 or less! Chef Devin Gilroy sources all seafood from local Cape fishermen and runs an in-house butcher program using Doole Hollow Farm for whole steers and Roaming Acres Farm (for pigs) exclusively. They use locally sourced produce as much as possible (70-75% in the summer), smoke and dry-age their meats, produce their own handmade pastas, even grind their own hamburger! Why not try their home-made lobster ravioli with porcini mushrooms, followed by a dessert, say the absinthe and chocolate chip gelato? Finally, choose a glass of wine from their eclectic selection of small production wines and lesser-known varietals from around the world!

Last but not least, try out Bayside Betsy's, where the staff is friendly and efficient, Betsy makes you feel like family, and where you'll become addicted to their home-made potato chips served with bleu cheese, crispy bacon and ranch dressing! Specialties include Pasta Betsy, baked stuffed haddock with seafood filling and Newburg sauce, and sirloin steak kabobs with zucchini and summer squash, served over rice! Ask for pistachio cake for dessert – it's to die for! Finally her Italian night Thursdays, Friday Night Fish Fry, and Sunday-Monday “comfort food” specials return at the end of October!
