the barefoot contessa can do no wrong. these eateries have been featured on her show and have my seal of approval as well. not that you needed it.
for obvious vegetarian reasons, bbq joints are not my thing. however, townline bbq has a very decent vegetarian selection and ed was pleased with his pulled pork sandwich. try the spicy pickles and california chili.
stock up on crab cakes, lobster bisque, and fish stew at the seafood shop. there is no seating inside. so it makes total sense to eat lobster rolls in the car, barefoot and freezing, heat on high, with a sandy wet dog in your lap.
we stopped at tate's bake shop on our way back to the city for shortbread, coffee cake muffins, and their crunchy chocolate chip cookies.
