Formerly The Cottage on Route 295, the iconic, low-slung building has been revived by Rick Newton and Dave Shea (a CIA-trained chef), a couple of volunteer firemen from East Chatham. The emphasis is on fresh and local ingredients. The menu is sophisticated but family-friendly, with the usual fish and chips, burgers and grilled sandwiches (BLT, Reuben, goat cheese and roasted peppers, open-face roast beef) balanced by excellent salads (Caesar, Greek, roasted beet, wedge). The appetizer sampler, with a shrimp skewer, fried mozzarella and chicken tenders, is perfect for adults and their small children to share. Read the full article.
