Once the waitress blended the avocados, cilantro, lime, and onion right beside our table, I knew this was going to be unlike any guacamole I had ever eaten. And as it turns out, Añejo Mexican Bistro and Tequila Bar, which opened last August on Falmouth’s Main Street, is unlike your average Mexican restaurant. Founded by Bay Area transplant Jesse Kersey and Five Bays Bistro owner Jamie Surprenant, the restaurant’s menu boasts gourmet Mexican fare with the authenticity to impress purists and the creativity to satisfy any culinary adventurer. I ordered the Chile Rellenos ($17), a classic dish of chile peppers stuffed with cheese and pico de gallo, and chile rojo sauce. My wife ordered the Langosta enchiladas ($18)—“a taste of the Cape with a Mexican flare,” Kersey calls it. The glazed lobster meat, corn, and jack cheese wrapped inside the chipotle-drizzled tortilla gave the dish a complex sweetness that makes it a stand-out on an all-around wonderful menu. Añejo also has a prodigious tequila selection and margaritas so fresh you taste the pulp through the straw. Just don’t forget to try the guacamole.
188 Main Street, Falmouth, www.anejomexicanbistro.com, 508-388-7631. Dinner: 4 p.m. to close; Sunday Brunch: 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
Located in the heart of Marstons Mills, Serendipity: A Good Eats Boutique is the perfect place to kick off your day with a quick, delicious breakfast or to enjoy a delightful take on tried-and-true lunch favorites. The eatery, run by Tracy Trewhella and Doug Taylor, features a menu of go-to dishes with snazzy, unique twists, and a whimsical atmosphere: S-E-R-E-N-D-P-I-T-Y is spelled out in playfully arranged Scrabble letters and Mickey Mouse-themed artwork adorns the walls. A menu includes hearty breakfast fare, to-die-for panini and wraps, salads, and baked goods. Try the spicy lentil soup or the sensational tomato veggie ($4.95 per cup).
Panini and wraps (all $6.95) include glorious medleys such as turkey, apple, brie, and apricot preserves; chicken, mozzarella, pesto, and tomato; or you can invent your own. They also offer a vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free menu to accommodate every type of eater. Pick up a treat from the great selection of baked goods and desserts. As Tracy jokingly said to a customer who just needed that extra slice of chocolate torte, “What happens at Serendipity, stays at Serendipity.”—Lindsay Oliver

The Nantucket Wine Festival commemorates 15 years of bringing some of the most celebrated winemakers to the island during this year’s four-day event, which takes place May 18 through 22. Presented by Nantucket Combined Charities, the 2011 festival once again toasts world-renowned wines paired with superb cuisine against the backdrop of some of the island’s most beautiful locations.
The festival traces back to 1990 when Denis Toner, then working as sommelier at Nantucket’s distinguished restaurant, Chanticleer, realized that there was no better place than the island for a wine and food festival. The festival got off the ground in 1997 and word spread organically to wine makers and wine lovers. Read more…
Chatham’s Wequassett Resort and Golf Club has long been famous for its cuisine in four superb restaurants appealing to diners from near and far of all culinary inclinations. In our dining section this month, we asked the Wequassett’s executive chef Bill Brodsky to share some of his favorite seaside grilling recipes.
In addition to offering dining choices in unmatched seaside settings, the Wequassett is a world-class resort. Nestled on 27 beautifully manicured waterfront acres overlooking Pleasant Bay, the resort features 120 guest rooms and suites, magnificent pools, a beach, and opportunities for boating, tennis, and championship golf.
Wequassett is Cape Cod’s only AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Four Star resort and is a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. The resort has also been named on Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List for six consecutive years. The Wequassett accommodates vacationers from around the world as well as hosting a variety of national and international business meetings.
This summer the Wequassett hosts the eighth annual Cape Cod Jazz Festival, featuring an exciting lineup of jazz, blues, world-beat, and Latin performers every Tuesday and Wednesday evening in July and August. Additional summer highlights include a gala Fourth of July celebration with a spectacular display of fireworks as well as family and children’s programming. Read more…

Thirty years after entering his first acting class, Harwich native Nat McIntyre makes a living performing on stage and screen in New York City. Mostly working Off-Broadway, McIntyre has gone from memorizing lines from his first-ever part in Life with Father to gearing up for performing in Othello this summer in all five New York City boroughs. Looking back, McIntyre realizes something: in discovering Harwich Junior Theatre, he discovered his passion. “The theatre put me on the straight and narrow, if you can put a six-year-old on the straight and narrow,” he says, laughing. “It was so good for me.”
Each season since it was first founded 60 years ago by the late Betty Bobp, Harwich Junior Theatre has delighted audiences of all ages with dozens of plays and musicals. More than 20,000 folks attended performances last year. Just as important, the mix of actors has helped form a creative and nurturing institution on Division Street.
“It is my true belief that when people of all ages create theatre together, the energy and creative potential is boundless,” says Producing Artistic Director Nina Schuessler, who landed her first Harwich Junior Theatre role nearly 35 years ago. “It is truly intergenerational here.”
The post-performance scene outside the small clapboard theatre is also an energetic, friendly gathering of arts lovers of all ages. Festive teenage jesters who greet the crowd at performances and happy crowds gather around the farmer’s porch. Children, prodded by parents and gripping pens in their tiny fists, turn their faces up to the costumed actors. The actors sign their names and write upbeat messages onto every playbill passed into their hands, bantering with the patrons and accepting their good wishes. Read more…
