A couple of weeks ago Michael & I enjoyed an all too quick getaway to one of our favorite New England towns, Provincetown. We discovered the charm of Provincetown last year and couldn’t wait to return, especially after booking a room at the newly restored Salt House Inn. Even though we only had one night in Provincetown, we enjoyed every single minute of our visit! Read about last year’s spring trip to Provincetown here.
A new favorite restaurant in Provincetown! When we told our innkeeper, Kevin, that we were hoping to swing by the newly opened restaurant, he confirmed that The Canteen was one of his favorites in town, and thankfully recommended the Cod Banh Mi. We highly recommend a meal at The Canteen, and especially loved the Banh Mi, the Kale + Quinoa Salad and the Grilled Corn.
After our scrumptious meal at The Canteen, I was in the mood for something sweet, so Ptown Scoop (also recommended to us by our innkeeper) was our next stop. One Bourbon Caramel Pistachio Brittle cup later and I was a very happy camper.
We popped into SHOR during our first visit last year and loved the shop’s chic wares, so a second visit was a must. I was happy to stumble across (and purchase!) a landscape painting by a local artist working under the nom de plume, Willie Saint James.
After walking by Adam Peck Gallery on Friday night, we decided to make the time to return the next morning as soon as they opened. As the owners of a tiny cape, we fell in love with the simple houses that make up one of the main sources of inspiration for Adam’s work. We ended up walking out with a 6×6 oil painting of a tangerine house, a lovely complement to our little mint green cape.
Our friends, Cory & Robyn, know the owners of this gallery & antique shop on Commercial Street, and insisted we stop in during our trip. I happened to know the manager, Sarah, from her days at Seawall in Portland, and enjoyed catching up with her while browsing the shop’s awesomely well put together collection.
Having just visited John Derian’s East Village shops the week before, I have to say that this one is my favorite – it has a similar aesthetic as the New York shop but with a bit of added New England charm.
I can easily say that without a doubt, the Salt House Inn in Provincetown, MA, has been one of our favorite finds since we started Map & Menu. Never before have we both been quite so taken with the detailed charm of a place, and just minutes after we arrived, we were already discussing extending our stay.
