Getting a read on tasty menu - BOOKSTORE & RESTAURANT Cape Cod Times (Hyannis, MA) - November 14, 2007 Author: Laurie Higgins My husband and I are looking for first editions of several books to give as Christmas gifts, so we decided to head up to Bookstore & Restaurant in Wellfleet for some treasure hunting and dinner. We missed the bookstore (it closes at 4 p.m.), but our dining experience was great, so we'll try again with an earlier start next time. Bookstore & Restaurant has a great formula that has kept people coming back since 1964. It serves the freshest local seafood in a comfortable setting with views of Cape Cod Bay. The two-story building has a dining room on each floor. Barnboard walls decorated with local photographs and hanging plants create a cozy at-home feeling perfect for relaxing. The menu is a decent size, with the majority of the entrees being seafood - and only a few of them priced over $20. I decided to start with a cup of the soup of the day ($2.95), which was chicken with rice. The soup had a tantalizing aroma and was simply delicious. It was brimming with chicken and rice and had carrots, peas, onions, celery and red peppers. Fresh parsley and a hint of curry added to the appeal. For my entr????e I chose the Chatham Cod ($16.50), which was a generous piece of cod that was lightly seasoned and baked in white wine and butter. It was delicious and cooked perfectly. The dinner came with a choice of rice, baked potato or french fries. The baked potato was big and tasty. My husband ordered the Mussels and Littlenecks Marinara ($14.95). It consisted of a giant bowl of linguini with a chunky marinara sauce that was nicely spicy, just the way he likes it. The dish brimmed with such an abundance of mussels and littlenecks that it was hard to finish. After a debate about keeping to my $20 budget, and whether that applied to him as well, my husband successfully argued that some things are worth going a little over the top for, and dessert is one of them. He ordered the homemade Jamaican Rum Cake ($6). It was a dense and moist slice of warm, spicy cake. A giant scoop of homemade whipped cream on the side was topped with three perfectly ripe strawberries, sliced to fan out for an attractive and tasty garnish. Yep, it was worth it and even though that brought our total to $40.40, it was hard to feel guilty for the indulgence. We've been to Bookstore & Restaurant several times and have never had a bad meal. On a past visit I ordered the Fruits of the Sea ($19.95) cooked in a delicate herb broth that allowed the seafood's freshness to shine. That dish came with an enormous serving of Wellfleet littlenecks, Cape sea scallops, and jumbo shrimp, and I highly recommend it.
