If you're a newcomer to Provincetown and unfamiliar with the scene, take a seat outdoors for lunch at Bubala's and soak it all in. The drag queens in high heels and feather boas will flirt with you, and invite you to their show later that evening (or you can just stick around Bubala's for live entertainment most nights). People-watching is the sport here, and while you're sitting you might as well eat and drink.

If you're ambling along Commercial Street in search of a quick lunch, walk up to the window at Burger Queen, where the sign declares, "Sorry, We're Open." The shack, with a handful of picnic tables alongside it, has been serving fast-food basics – hamburgers, foot-long hot dogs, reasonably priced lobster rolls, and must-have curly fries – for 40 years.

Perched atop the Provincetown street scene for 40 seasons, Edwige continues serving local and globally inspired dishes, such as Portuguese Bouillabaisse and Moroccan Vegetable Tagine, best enjoyed with the house-made fruit-infused vodkas. The simple interior, with its wooden booths and tables surrounded by black Windsor chairs, is a favorite gathering place for brunch too, thanks to its smoothies and smoked salmon platter and signature poppy-seed Danish.

There's shrimp cocktail or guanciale-wrapped shrimp with balsamic caramel; fish sticks or olive oil-poached cod; roast chicken or North African lentil stew; and others, all made with organic and locally sourced ingredients. And, like his other outpost, there's a divine brunch menu.

The concept is wine bar with small plates. We expect this will become a warm, West End neighborhood gathering place for those looking for good company and gourmet snacks.

Ice cream from Lewis Brothers is homemade and heavenly. Flavors include old-time favorites, plus liquor-infused selections, like Mudslide Chip, and other inventive concoctions, such as Purple Rain. Sundaes are created with ladlefuls of made-from-scratch hot fudge, and whipped cream so dense that they use spatulas to heap it on. The brothers' (there are three) solar-powered ice cream truck parks at a variety of spots throughout the season; locations posted on Twitter.

Overlooking historic Provincetown harbor, the Lobster Pot is part of what makes Provincetown such a special place. You can dine in either of our two waterfront dining rooms and choose from a menu that features fresh seafood, Portuguese specialties, steaks, poultry, vegetarian and light fare.


Steamers just out of the ocean and as big as your fist, Portuguese fish stew, and linguica-crusted cod with seafood stuffing are some of the traditional Provincetown dishes offered alongside steamed lobsters at local mainstay, The Lobster Pot. It's narrow and crowded, but make your way to the back for water views to enjoy your feast.

The white clapboard building with cafe curtains is also charming inside, with wood-plank floors and shelves stocked with plenty of wine. A small cooler offers organic meats, artisanal cheeses, and paté, while tables of specialty items like raw honey and extra-virgin olive oil dispensed from large metal canisters, round out the mix.

They sell old-school egg sandwiches, but the real reason to walk into the worn storefront of the Portuguese Bakery, which has been in business since about 1900, is for the pastries. Sweet fried dough called malasadas, custard-filled doughnuts, and rabanadas, a kind of fried French toast with cinnamon sugar are among the specialties. To satisfy your savory side, try the salted codfish cakes.

The dining room of The Red Inn has wide plank floors, a beamed ceiling, and lighthouse views, while the kitchen offers equally cozy fare that includes pan-roasted cod on a bed of rosemary potatoes, lobster grilled with citrus butter, and spice-rubbed lamb chops.

If you're up for walking deep into the West End (do so, it's charming), you can find sustenance at Relish, open mornings and afternoons. Regulars rave about the chicken salad sandwich with gorgonzola and pears, as well as the Italian-style tuna salad, ideal for the beach. The bakery turns out an array of exquisite desserts, including key lime tart, butterscotch haystacks, and chocolate espresso cookies, in addition to full, made-to-order cakes.

Sip cocktails on the deck while you wait for a table (reserve ahead). Start with French onion gratinee or mussels in garlicky broth, followed by salmon with a ginger-sweet soy glaze or steak frites.

Currently the pick of the smart places to eat in P-town, Victor's is one of the few that feels properly metropolitan, and attracts local artists and dignitaries as well as big city spenders. It's seafood-oriented, with a great raw bar and modern small-plates menu. The grilled fish soft tacos are good, and the lobster sliders fun. If you're looking for something more substantial, seared halibut fillet is served with orzo and artichoke hearts. As is the way in P-town, the cocktails are great, and the wine list is decent too.

The Box Lunch provides tasty and easy to eat (read: kid-friendly) alternatives to basic sandwiches for takeout beach lunches. It's especially known for its rollwiches; fillings such as lobster, turkey, egg salad, and hummus are rolled in pita bread along with cheese, avocado, hot peppers, and other fixings, providing plenty of meat-eater and vegetarian options. (Try the Roy Rogers: turkey, melted Swiss and provolone, barbecue sauce, and onions). There are even mini wraps for the little ones.
