At The Sacred Cod, Executive Chef Anthony Cole serves up traditional New England and local seafood fare with his own twist. Serving up culinary delights such as crispy Point Judith calamari, local Chatham oysters (harvested less than 5 minutes away), Gioia burrata, Prime Steak Frites, and the delectable lobster roll; these are just a few favorites of both guests and locals. The sophisticated yet rustic Sacred Cod has an extensive craft beer menu and offers a creative cocktails menu to enhance the mood. All vegetables used at Sacred Cod are locally grown at the Chatham Bars Inn Farm in nearby Brewster, Mass. Chatham Bars Inn Farm is a self-sustainable farm that grows fruits and vegetables for the resort and its two restaurants. The 8-acre farm produces over 100,000 pounds and 125 different varieties of vegetables each year using traditional, but more importantly, innovative hydroponics farming techniques. Farm Manager Joshua Schiff is leading the way, pioneering self-sustainable farming, while teaching other local farms how to increase their crop yields and produce more produce (pardon the play on words). The Farm Stand serves the community selling locally grown produce to the public. The breathtaking property can also be leased for private parties or weddings and features a long rustic table underneath twinkle lights wrapped trellis, surrounded by flower fields, truly a perfect location for any event.
The Chatham Bars Inn is a historic and iconic Cape Cod destination, offering magnificent views, endless amenities, and unmatched personal service. This resort is a must for the well-traveled Nobleman.
