The outlying towns of Cape Cod are an environment far removed from New York City. There are trees instead of skyscrapers, calm instead of chaos, the lazy chirp of crickets in place of car horns. While the Outer Cape (anything above the elbow) may seem too rugged trip for the civilized city slicker, especially when it comes to food, fear not -- there's no reason to stock up on a weekend's worth of bland sandwich makings from the Hyannis Trader Joe's before departing the Lower Cape. Throughout Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, and Orleans -- the five towns that dot the great expanse of National Seashore -- there are plenty of places where you can get a taste of the traditional and the innovative, the country cooking and the New England refinement that define Cape Cod.
