Our annual college roommates weekend on Cape Cod always involves great food, wine, cocktails, and lots of fun. The first night tradition is to do a lobster boil, followed by karaoke in Provincetown. The second night, if I am lucky enough to get a day off to stay, is devoted to a delicious Provincetown restaurant. This year, we celebrated my birthday at Ten Tables Provincetown.
I had been to Ten Tables in Provincetown for cocktails before but never eaten at this sweet spot in a lovely old house. Being still out of season, Ten Tables wasn’t crowded yet, and we enjoyed a really delicious and relaxing dinner there.
I started with the same cocktail I had the last time, Paint the Town Red, a completely refreshing blend of Wodka Vodka, St. Germain, fresh strawberries, lemon juice & splash of Cava Rose. I could drink this cocktail all day long, preferably with a beach view.
One of my friends sipped this lovely lilac cocktail, Grey Gardens, with a garden view.
The menu offered lots of delectable items, and I decided that after a night and day of indulgences, I needed a vegetable in my life. Crunchy, fresh cucumbers, golden oregano, and feta made for a refreshing starter.
I balanced the cold and crunchy with some briny, creamy fried oysters with piquillo pepper relish. It was my second time eating fried oysters that weekend. I can’t get enough fried seafood.
My friend’s burger, topped with an egg and nestled next to gravy fries was the perfect comfort food. The fries were salty and delicious, even better dunked in smoky BBQ sauce.
We may have been full and ready for more cocktails and dancing, but a visit to Ten Tables is not complete without their chocolate terrine with Thai basil ice cream. It is one of the best desserts I have ever had, and I will always make room for a few bites.
Ten Tables in Jamaica Plain and Cambridge are both fabulous, and the Provincetown location certainly measures up. Provincetown is one of my favorite places on the planet, and Ten Tables definitely makes it more delicious.
