Outer Cape Featured in Tomorrow's NYT

Wellfleet is yet again the focus of a summer New York Times travel article, “In Clam Shack Country, the Classics Reign,” by Mark Bittman. Reporting on dinner options on the Outer Cape is not surprising when you see the number of cars with New York plates in the town hall parking lot of late. This year the Times features restaurants, and Mac’s Shack, reviewed here in May, gets high marks, with special mention for Abba in Orleans, which Sven and I also always recommend to guests. The article offers a great photo of Mac's Shack. Over at, local freelance writer Kathy Shorr recommends the newest food destination on the Cape, located in Truro. This spring the Blacksmith Shop closed its doors and submitted to a complete renovation. The Blackfish rises from the ashes. I cannot wait for September when Sven and I will venture forth and have dinner there!
