The Juice will not open until Thursday but Wellfleet's other restaurants are already gearing up for high season. Eating out can be expensive, which is why more people than ever before seem to be choosing to picnic or buy take out at Wellfleet Marketplace although our little town does have some great dining options. There's Wicked Oyster, of course. Mac's Shack, already described a few weeks ago, and in photo, above. Mac's Seafood, on the harbor. Winslow's Tavern I featured in this blog last month. We had dinner at Winslow's yesterday because owner Tracey Berry Hunt also went to Vassar, and I wanted to encourage her to come to reunion in 2014 while I was still brimming over with enthusiasm for the experience. Winslow's is a great choice for lunch, too, with tables on the front lawn. Moby Dick's is run by Tracey's brother Todd. The two restaurants remain sensible choices for anyone who is trying to reduce expenditures while on vacation. Our future French restaurant is not ready for dinner guests yet due to financing difficulties in this tough economic climate. Pearl, the newest eatery, was constructed on the site of Captain Higgins, and the owners used recycled materials, which is great. However, we had guests who decided not to lunch there, finding the menu a bit too pricey. I noticed a sign for Sol in the building where Uncle Frank once held sway. Guests praised Sol to me last year. In the center of town, the Lighthouse still offers Mexican night. Flying Fish dishes up a great pizza. A new pizza place has opened on Route 6 at the spot where Eric's Seafood once stood, and we have not had a chance to go. Across Route 6, PJs always draws a crowd. And, Finally JPs still offers Prix Fixe and needs more kitchen help. We had guests journey to Truro for Terra Luna, my favorite of all, and report back that the meal had been delicious, but expensive. Sven still has not experienced Blackfish, in Truro. Another restaurant on my personal must-try list is Cafe Edwige's in P-town. For the time being, we will be having soup, using the organic leeks and potatoes from the garden after my five nights in a row of dining out ...
