A Fresh Catch

Ashleigh Bennett Whether sheltered indoors or at one of the outdoor picnic tables nestled in the shade, Catch of the Day is a quintessential Cape Cod seafood experience. Chef and manager Jason Kew informs us that the seafood is delivered fresh daily. With that tip, I begin with generously portioned Wellfleet Littlenecks ($7) from the raw bar and my guest orders Fried Calamari with Marinara Sauce ($9), a perfectly breaded, mouth-watering taste of things to come. For dinner, I order Grilled Striper (market price), served with cilantro-lime aioli on top of linguine with garlic and parsley; my guest orders the Cajun-Blacked Swordfish ($19.50), served with roasted corn salsa and sweet potato fries. Both dishes are tender, well-seasoned—and very fresh. The restaurant offers a full range of weekly specials as well as a lengthy beer and wine list with plenty of local brands; the light-bodied Truro Vineyards Cape Blush paired wonderfully with our meals. The restaurant, which includes a seafood market, is open through Wellfleet OysterFest weekend.
