A very groovy eatery tucked down a side alley in the WESTEND of Town at #179 Commercial Street.
Good Food, GREAT Cocktails and a very Groovy Crowd.. Grilled Oysters with Cracked Pepper and Lemon Butter are a flavorful favorite!
On Sunday June 1, The Mews is sponsoring a plein air painting event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM). Dozens of artists are expected to paint a model on the beach in the Impressionist tradition advocated by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Charles Webster Hawthorne, founder of the Provincetown art colony (the oldest, continuously operating art colony in America). The public is invited to watch the artists move a painting from a sketch to a finished work of art while enjoying a fabulous brunch or from the shore. The artists will paint from 8am to 2pm. There will be a Wet Paint Exhibition and Reception at The Mews from 2:30 to 4:00. The reception is free and open to the public. The Mews is located at 429 Commercial Street, in Provincetown on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. For more information or reservations, please call 508.487.1500 or visit mews.com.
The Mews Restaurant and Cafe, established as an eating and drinking society 50 years ago and long one of New England’s most popular gathering spots, is celebrating this milestone with a year of distinctive events, new and retro menu items, original drinks, giveaways, and special guest appearances. The festivities kick off with a Night of Nostalgia on Sunday, January 5 featuring a menu of regular as well as a few items from their original menu including 1964 prices for those items. As always, Chef Laurence de Freitas will be accessing local purveyors and his award-winning skills to create these dishes in the manner that has garnered excellent reviews from Zagat and multitudes of others, and bartender extraordinaire Pingle Bowden will be on hand to suggest accompanying wines and cocktails from The Mews’ impressive selection of vodkas (300 plus) and other liquors.
As General Manager and co-owner of The Mews, television actor, theater professional and radio personality Ron Robin has created a year of enticing events highlighting many of the culinary and entertaining triumphs of the last five decades. In classic Provincetown style, on Night of Nostalgia, the staff will be dressed in 60s garb to align with the evening’s specials and retro musical selections.
Continuing the celebration, the sweet vocal harmonies and exciting string arrangements of popular classic rock, folk and original tunes of Grace and the RSO will open the 2014 Coffeehouse season on Monday, January 6, for its 23rd year. Coffeehouse entertainment, with a variety of award-winning musicals acts, will continue every Monday night into the spring. Often standing-room-only affairs, those in the know will grab a table for dinner with a view of the stage.
Noted as a top choice by TripAdvisor, Yelp and Yankee Magazine, among many others, it’s not surprising that The Mews is the first choice for locals and visitors seeking repast and libations.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Commercial street you will find 141 Bradford Natural Market, a natural and organic foods store that has been a part of Provincetown’s community for the past 30 years. For the past two years, Chris Getman and Joe Freitas have transformed the space into an airy environment – but don’t be deceived by all of the open space – there are a lot of products here : homeopathics, a wall of vitamins, supplements, and dietary herbs, organic produce, and foods for the entire kitchen, with an emphasis on local and organic.
What is especially recent about this store is the 141 Kitchen, which features a daily hot bar – think broccolini with shallot and dill, yellow curry with fingerling potatoes, and southwest frittata. And here’s a secret – it’s best to get there around 11 when the food is brought out ! As an employee of 141, my opinions might come off as biased, but I wholeheartedly support and advocate the high quality food we produce here.
If you aren’t into hot food during the peak of summer, the 141 kitchen also features a cold case with Thai peanut noodles with tofu, smoked tempeh wraps, the homemade veggie burger bowl, and a crunchy sunflower seed kale salad with cashew lemon miso dressing. The bar also does fresh green and vegetable juices, smoothies, and wheatgrass shots, and even E3-live shots for the brave ones.
The on-premise baker, Jim Evangelista, makes a good variety of gluten-free desserts and baked goods . And I’ve got to say – where can you find a vegan whoopie pie on Cape Cod but at 141 ? Exactly. Give it a try, and thank me later.
