The Barnstable Restaurant and Tavern: Fine Dining

restaurant dining table with white linens and glasswareThe question we are asked most often during the winter months is: “What is there to do on the Cape?”

Enjoying a fine dinning experience is usually our answer.  Many restaurants and wine shops use this slower time of the year to offer unique food and wine experiences.  Collaborating with themed dinners, cooking demonstrations and cooking classes, these events give you the opportunity to enjoy exceptional food paired with great wines and beers and to learn more the techniques of your favorite chef.

Some of the most interesting theme dinners we’ve attended have been a Beer Dinner, a Champagne Dinner and a Rum Dinner.  We will be following several restaurants and wine shops giving you details on their latest offerings.

Today we will be highlighting The Barnstable Restaurant and Tavern. Located on Main Street in Barnstable Village, this restaurant is just down the street from our inn.  Chef/Owner Bob Calderone and his wife Susan Finegold do several wine dinners each winter, their nest one will be on Thursday February 24, 2011 and features Washington State wines.  Here’s the menu, its looks delicious:
