"The Bookstore and Restaurant overlook the beautiful Wellfleet Bay, which feeds into the larger Cape Cod Bay. Diners can look out at the fishing boats steaming out around the hook of Billingsgate, where the original whaling town was founded, now submerged under the sea. The Bookstore and Restaurant offers the seafood treasures from our Atlantic coast, especially cod, littlenecks, oysters, scallops, mussels, and lobster." -The Bookstore and Restaurant.

He debated Joe DiMaggio (New York Yankee, pro-tomato) on the radio. Set aside the obvious travesty of tomato-based chowder, and then the question becomes: Creamy broth? Or clear broth? Bacon fat, or no bacon fat?"
