Serene Seas, Fine Food

Life December 2010 After a day spent fishing the open seas or basking on a Cape Cod beach, a meal at The Chart Room on Red Brook Harbor in Cataumet is a special treat. Dine in the weathered-wood dining room or on the covered porch with a pristine view of the harbor, both complimenting the friendly service and sumptuous seafood. To start, we ordered the clams casino ($8.95) and the delicious lobster bisque ($5.96). While The Chart Room is known for its broiled lamb chops ($22.95) and broiled swordfish with anchovy butter ($22.95), this sunset spot really delivered with its specials menu. I decided on the grilled filet mignon, with melted Gorgonzola cheese and a cabernet demi-glaze, served with baked potato, asparagus, and sweet potato ($24.95). My guest ordered the swordfish over gorgonzola and sun-dried tomato ravioli in a chardonnay basil sauce, topped with a lobster tail ($25.95). After dining, we stepped outside and admired the sunset.
