Remember Franco's in Provincetown?

Franco's biscotti

2 1/2 cups of flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 double action baking powder
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Blend together all ingredients except wine and oil. Then add wine and oil. Blend mixture until it just forms a dough. Divide into 24 pieces. Arrange on ungreased cookie shee. Bake at 3350 for 20 to 30 minute and until bottoms are golden. Transfer to a rack and cool. Great plain or with cheese spreads. (Franco served them with a caviar, shallot, cream cheese spread.

I remember Franco's. My nephew was a server there, and not because of that, it was one of my favorite places to eat. Do you remember the beginning of the meal when they would bring you red wine pepper biscuits with caviar butter? I have that recipe but mine are no where as good as Franco's. I don't think there is anything that compares but Jimmy's Hideaway worth a try.

Top 5 of the Cape

People, even those who've lived here for a while get this confused. The Outer Cape and the Lower Cape are the same area of the Cape. There's just 2 names for it. I imagine Lower Cape was in response to Upper Cape, but I prefer Outer because we're out here! I'm posting a link here so you can check out the real deal!

Lay it on me, hounds--best dining on Outer Cape

Yes, Pearl is really good and consistent. Love the atmosphere. Best clam chowder may be Moby Dick's. And looking below, I wouldn't eat at the Post Office Cafe if they were holding my children hostage. Remember, Chach!

Lay it on me, hounds--best dining on Outer Cape

First, regarding the initial comment about just OK food on the Cape--I believe this is true when placed in the context of the real world. I've lived here 10 years and have spent WAY too much money on food that could be prepared better at home. Still, what is more fun than eating out? If I were to name my favorite places on the Outer Cape I'd have to agree that Jimmy's Hideaway, Ross's Grill, the Mews are great places to dine. Babe's, as I see mentioned in the next reply was wonderful but is no longer in business. Terra Luna in Truro used to be one of my favorites but I ate there last year and decided to never return. The service and food had changed completely. I'm a fan of Napi's during the off-season. Order their Shrimp Sante Fe. Yum! And Chach is a must for breakfast--in fact, this restaurant could be located anywhere and would be beloved. Their omelet with green chili pork is stunning. And that makes me think of Lorraine's. Sure the tequila is good if that is why you are going there, but the prices are outrageous and the food is no where as good as it used to be. People pay $21 for a bean burrito, please. Go to Big Daddy's Burrito in the Aquarium Mall and take it out to the deck where you'll find the Aqua Bar and one of the best views in town. Enjoy!
