3 new restaurants in Falmouth include CSalt at TGC in East Falmouth

CSalt at The Grille at TGC

As we approach Memorial Day,  Cape Cod’s unofficial beginning of the summer season, 3 new restaurants in Falmouth have opened and we are looking forward to another fun filled season.

Swordfish Chop at CSalt

First we share that the ever popular CSalt has opened a second location at The Grille Room at The Golf Club in East Falmouth.CSalt has long been a favorite restaurant of our guests particularly their calamari and mussel dishes seem to be fan favorites. We were fortunate to attend the premier opening night for the new CSalt and Kevin enjoyed the sea scallops for his main entree after his calamari appetizer and I enjoyed the swordfish which was cooked perfectly. A couple of things to know about the new CSalt location – they offer both indoor and outdoor dining weather permitting and the size of this 2nd restaurant location it is a bit larger. The menu has some differences from the original CSalt such as the addition of  “Jill’s pasta. The CSalt at The Grille Room also does automatically place a 20% gratuity on your bill because the facility is part of The Golf Club country club. Our culinary kitchen assistant, Lauren, just this past week went to CSalt at The Grille Room for lunch and raved about the great sandwiches and service.

In the village of Woods Hole in Falmouth two new waterfront restaurants will look forward to welcoming you this summe. The restaurant previously known as Fishmonger will be reopening as Water Street Kitchen and Public House,  and the former waterfront restaurant known as Phusion has just reopened as 41-70. Enjoy some articles that have been written recently about 41-70. First is an article is by a writer from bostonchefs.com in anticipation of the opening and their excitement that 41-70 will feature two accomplished Brookline chefs. The next article is one written by a local writer for the cape cod times and is after the opening this spring of 2016.

Other restaurant news is that many of us in town have missed the delicious food from thai restaurant Bangkok Cuisines which due to a fire in the neighboring building was destroyed a couple of years ago………well they are returning to town and will be opening on Main Street in Falmouth Village later this summer.

 

6 Key Bloody Mary Bar Ingredients

May 3, 2016 by Trish Robinson

Sharing our 6 Key Bloody Mary Bar Ingredients is our pleasure as we prepare for our new Virgin Mary Breakfast bar debut at The Bloody Mary Bar Captain’s Manor Inn on Mother’s Day Weekend 2016 right here in Cape Cod.

The Robinson family has long been a fan of a good Virgin or Bloody Mary and we are often known to enjoy one in the comfort of our living room while watching a football game and enjoying potato chips and homemade onion dip or if we are being a little healthier the snack might be tortilla chips and salsa or even raw vegetables and ranch dip.

We are always in search of a really good mix and of course the right condiments.

In our travels we have experienced a host of different condiments and mix blends. In fact, I think Kevin may have a little Canadian heritage because he is known to like to add Clamato juice along with tomato juice when making his drink and in Canada that is a fan favorite known as a Caesar rather than a Bloody Mary.

With a special blend of ingredients and our list of key ingredients we are happy to begin offering a Virgin Mary bar for our guests during Saturday and Sunday breakfast. It goes without saying that you need to start with a good tomato juice for your base and we use Sacramento tomato juice.

Here is our list of 6 key Bloody Mary or Virgin Mary bar ingredients:

1). Salt or Old Bay Seasoning – You need to start by preparing the rim of your glass by first putting some lime juice or lemon juice on the rim then dip the glass rim in either some nice kosher salt or Old Bay Seasoning.

2). Citrus – You have already used a little lemon or lime juice on the rim of your glass and now a couple wedges of lemon or lime will add a little zing to your drink.

3). Veggies – A nice crisp celery stalk for both stirring and munching is a key ingredient.

4). Garnish – Some large queen olives stuffed with pimentos and some petite pearl onions add a nice pop your drink after they have been soaking in the mix for a bit.

5). “Magic Mud” – Recently we found a mix that was created by some expert bartenders who refined it over the years. This mix includes 14 all natural spices and ingredients and while it may not look appetizing (the word mud is in its name) it is absolutely fabulous.Muddy Mary Mix as part of 6 key ingredients for Bloody Mary Bar

6). Condiment Finish – Many of you know I joke about Kevin being the condiment king and if you saw our refrigerator you would know it to be true. So for our Virgin Mary breakfast bar condiments we will offer Tobasco sauce Worcestershire sauce, A1 steak sauce and even BBQ sauce as a nod to our southern guests.

We look forward to your visit and should you want to take home a bit of “magic mud” known as Muddy Mary’s Bloody Mary Mud we have both small and large bottles available in our store.

 

Stress Relief is a Weekend Away!

April 3, 2016 by Trish Robinson

Stress relief is a weekend away when you book at The Captain’s Manor Inn! Perhaps it’s the long, cold winter that’s gotten you down? Maybe it’s the never-ending to-do list, or the long hours atwork; regardless of where your stress is coming from, we’ve got the solution to get rid of it! Are you coming in from the city? Then we suggest you bypass the stress of driving, and take the Peter Pan Bus line from Boston or Providence. Your relaxing weekend can begin with the opportunity to dive into that novel you’ve been meaning to read, or catch up with friends and family on social media, all while you’re in transit to beautiful Cape Cod. The best part about the Peter Pan Bus? Your destination is a short walk away from the inn! Of course if walking isn’t your idea of relaxation, you could take a taxi or an Uber, but you might enjoy stretching your legs and taking in the sights on your walk to relaxation!

Ghelfis chocolates for mothers day getawayOnce you arrive at the Inn, any remaining stress from the city will melt away the second you enter. In addition to complimentary gourmet breakfast, afternoon snack and round the clock access to beverages, you’ll receive a bottle of wine and gourmet chocolates from Ghelfi’s Candies of Cape Cod that you can enjoy in a number of relaxing locations at the Inn. Enjoy your wine on the porch, bistro, or dining room or perhaps you’d rather recline on a lounge chair on the acre plus of serene, private grounds.

When you choose the solo stress relief package, you’ll be able to choose between a reflexology or massage treatment. Both reflexology and massage are ancient relaxation and stress relief traditions that have withstood the test of time. An ancient Japanese belief is that the body and mind are interconnected and one cannot be completely relaxed if the other is not. Either of these two treatments will simultaneously relax your body, and your mind.

Spend your day doing whatever it is that relaxes you. Perhaps you’d like to stroll down to Eight 2Cousins, our locally owned and operated book shop and choose a new book? You can take your book to the park or beach and get lost in the pages. Didn’t bring a beach chair or a towel? No problem! Simply borrow one from the Inn!

If your idea of relaxing is fine dining, then you have certainly come to the right place. Steps away from the Inn are the best restaurants in Falmouth. Whether you’re feeling Mexican, Italian, or fusion, Main Street and Queens Buyway will have what you’re looking for. We love The Glass Onion for cocktails and dinner. Check out their menu here.

After an incredibly relaxing day followed by an incredibly relaxing evening, we invite you to prepare for the most restful sleep of your life. Atop your bed will be a Lavender Bear from Cape Cod lavenderelly bear and lavender eye mask for captain's manor innLavender Farm as well as a silky eye mask filled with lavender. Are you sensing a theme? Traced back to 2,500 years ago, lavender has long been used to fight stresses of the body and the mind. Lavender was even used to tame lions and tigers in ancient times! A recent study showed that breathing in the scent of lavender while sleeping increases the amount of time you spend in deep (slow wave) sleep. Of course sleeping on luxury linens helps too!

Stress is an easy thing to get and a difficult thing to lose, but a weekend at our peaceful inn will have you feeling good as new. Click here to book now!

 

Falmouth Village Blooming

March 13, 2016 by Trish Robinson

Falmouth Village Blooming is an experience you don’t want to miss! From April 30th-May 9th, Falmouth Village welcomes warmer weather with spring time activities galore! After a long, cold winter, the town of Falmouth is more than excited to shift gears and start preparing for all of the wonderful things that come with spring. Village businesses band together to congratulate everyone on making it through another winter with events, restaurant specials, and retail discounts.

An example of a Flower Power Special would be Cupcake Charlies offering a free cupcake with every 3 purchase and a Blooming Bargain example is 20% off jewelry at the Celebrations store during Falmouth Village Blooming.

Saturday, April 30th will kick off Falmouth Village Blooming and village shops will display their “May Baskets” on the sidewalk in front of their store. We’ve had some exceptionally creative displays in the past. Here are a few that stood out to us:

Like this one from Bear in Boots Gastropub, a restaurant specializing in homemade comfort food from around the world. Their basket contained delicious herbs and wine corks, two of the things that make a night at Bear and Boots deliciously memorable:bb

 

Here’s the submission from Pink Polka Dot, winner of most original basket. It’s no surprise that Jen incorporated beautiful paper flowers as this shop offers a large selection of artisan greeting cards, distinctive paper goods and unique gifts.

pp

 

There was no way we were missing out on the fun! Our basket included two harbingers of spring perched atop greenery and fresh flowers. We loved watching passerby stop to take a photo with our display.

cmi

The most fun part about the May baskets? You get to decide the winner! Vote by liking, sharing, or commenting on the photo of the basket that you think is the best, and on May 8th, all of the votes will be tallied and the winner will be announced May 9th. Strolling around the village looking at all of the beautiful baskets is one of our favorite parts of the spring here in Falmouth!

Highfield Hall and Gardens celebrates its welcome back weekend with an open house full of amazing events. Take a tour of the Ice House, built next to the kitchen garden where the Beebe family used to store their food, and serve chilled drinks and ice cream. What an appropriate tour to take to hhwelcome the warm weather! Tour the outdoor estate and learn about the property as well as the history – the team and Highfield will transport you back in time with their recount of what life was like during the 1870’s when the property was commissioned to be built. Robert Wyatt will play his favorite songs of spring after the artists reception which will feature ‘The Language of Flowers’ by Heather Blume. What May Day festivities would be complete without a May pole celebration? Not this one! Take part in the tradition of dancing around the May pole to usher in the new season. This year, for the first time ever, the groundskeeping crew at Highfield will get a little help – from goats! The adorable farm animals will munch on invasive plants and poison ivy, providing a natural, symbiotic solution to unwelcome plant life! Goatscaping will take place all day on May 1st.

ajIn the mood for a margarita? Anjo’s Mexican Bistro livens up Main Street every Cinco de Mayo with an unforgettable fiesta outdoors. They close down the street next to the restaurant to accommodate live music, an outdoor bar, and of course – delicious food! In addition to $5 margaritas, Mexican style beers and burritos, the crew at Anejo’s will be offering prizes and giveaways all day long. This is one of Falmouth’s favorite festivities, and you’re officially invited!

Every year during Falmouth Village Blooming, the Falmouth beautification council hosts its annual plant sale on the green. This is a great opportunity to get supplies for window baskets, outdoor gardens and indoor arrangements. Take a bit of spring home with you as a souvenir!

From April 30th-May 9th you can enjoy bloomin’ bargains at local retail shops and flower power specials inspired by the spring at village restaurants. The best part about the celebration? It’s all taking place steps away from your room at The Captain’s Manor Inn. Once you arrive, you can leave your car keys in your room for the duration of your stay. All of the participating restaurants and shops are right down the street. We’d love for you to enjoy this year’s Falmouth Village Blooming at The Captain’s Manor Inn.

New Suite Construction in Cape Cod

December 29, 2015 by Trish Robinson

Forbes original Door

Forbes Original Wall

Forbes Original Wall

 

New Suite Construction is underway at Captain’s Manor Inn and we couldn’t be more excited! We have been planning this romantic suite for sometime and we are now in full swing.

UPDATE – Since our original post December 29th we have some new photos to share. The electrical has been moved, the insulation of the new walls is complete, sheetrock has also been done. It is really starting to come together. This week the plaster work should be complete. The carpet is ordered and the new King bed is ready to be set up as soon as we finish painting and trim work.

NEW PICTURES:

The Forbes room which was named after Henrietta Forbes (for whom the Inn was originally built by her fiancé Captains Albert Nye) will be combined with the 3rd floor cupola to create a 2 story suite here at the Inn.

The Inn has such a wonderful history. In fact the cupola on the top on the Inn was once known as the observatory as told in the brief story below.

Captain John Robinson Lawrence purchased the property from the original owner, Captain Nye, in 1872. Captain Lawrence was a retired whaling captain turned businessman who maintained deep roots in the Falmouth community.   He raised his family here and his son H. V. Lawrence left a significant legacy to the Inn.     H. V. became a well known horticulturist and the first florist on Cape Cod.  The grounds of the Inn bear witness to his talents with many unique trees that survive to this day.  H. V. lived in the home until his death at the age of 92 in 1953.
The cupola atop the Inn was known in earlier times as the observatory as it once gave a commanding view of Vineyard sound.  As a boy, Milford Lawrence – son of H.V., had a wireless set in the observatory that he used to speak to the ships he could see passing up and down the sound.

You can experience a bit of that history in the new suite even though you can no longer see Vineyard Sound due to all the tree growth over the past 100+ years. You will see some beautiful sunrises and sunsets as well as a view of the Village Green.

Follow our progress on construction and enjoy these early pictures.

 

Looking for a very unique romantic getaway …. cape cod and the Captain’s Manor Inn’s new Forbes Cupola Suite may be just what you are looking for.

Turkeys on Cape Cod

December 20, 2015 by Trish Robinson

Turkeys stopping traffic

Turkeys on Cape Cod have become a not so uncommon sighting on Cape Cod right here in Falmouth Village. They have been known to stop traffic and be quite brazen about it.

Click on this funny link Huffington Post video to see how one of our local Falmouth postman has taken to carrying a long rod with him to ward off his new “friends”.

 

 

The turkeys have hit big time most recently with video footage on Boston TV stations such as WBZ as well as a story in the Boston Globe. The highlight of their notoriety though was in the Jimmy Fallon monologue in mid December.

The highlight of their notoriety though was in the Jimmy Fallon monologue in mid December.

Turkeys at Bear in Boots

One of their favorite hangouts in Falmouth Village early in the morning is at Bear in Boots Gastropub. We recently found out why….someone had left out some peanuts in shells and some corn shaved off the cob. So we are thinking one of our neighbors did a bit of research on favorite foods for turkeys.

You may not know that these birds do sleep up in trees. Many have been caught off guard on their early morning walk down main street when they go by our public library

turkeys in cae cod by falmouth library

Turkeys near the library

where we have numerous large trees and all of a sudden a noise is heard and down swoop the turkeys (mind you is is not a graceful flight).

 

All in all these birds have a rather interesting past as well. I certainly did not know until recently that they were Ben Franklin’s choice for the United States national bird.  I for one am very glad that the bald eagle won out and is our national bird seeing as they are certainly a more majestic bird!

Some other interesting facts are that it is only the male turkey that will display his ruffled feathers and fanlike tail. The mail bird also has a bright beard and their gobble has a distinctive sound that can be heard a mile away.  As for the female turkey they may lay 4 to 17 eggs. The mom will feed her chicks after they hatch—but only for a few days. The young turkeys have to learn pretty quickly to fend for themselves as part of  a mother/child flock can be well over a dozen.

So on your next visit to Falmouth be sure to be on the lookout for our famous flock of turkeys 🙂

Village of Scarecrows

November 11, 2015 by Trish Robinson

The Village of Scarecrows was once again a wonderful Fall celebration in Falmouth Village. Over 20 different and creative scarecrows were set up to adorn the lightposts throughout the village. Children and adults of all ages have been strolling along Main Street over the past couple of weeks to enjoy, snap pictures of and vote for their favorite scarecrow. Voting ends on November 15th. If you would like to participate in the voting and see all of the scarecrows for 2015 all you need to do is to go to the Falmouth Village Association facebook page and enter your vote for favorite.

In addition to the scarecrows on Main Street a scaredy crow contest is underway. The contest involves searching in various merchant restaurants and shops for their scaredy crow and finding out it’s name to complete the scavenger hunt form. All completed forms will be handed into the Eight Cousins bookstore where a winner will be drawn. The winner wins a shopping spree for over 10 different retailers on Main Street.  Happy scaredy crow hunting to all 🙂

We put together a sampling of the many scarecrows for your viewing below. We hope you enjoy!
