Cape Cod Room Makes Some Changes
A new bartendar, Kim Arkell, has come onboard to lead happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. During this time, there will be $6 cocktails, which you can match with two-for-one oysters or fried Ipswich clams. Arkell, incidentally, bartended at Joe Allen's for the past six and a half years.
Change two will be the new, seasonally revamped menu "with some new dishes at more approachable prices" (gee, hope this isn't because of anything we said). New dishes include chopped salad, chicken potpie, lobster macaroni and cheese, a beef burger, and a lobster burger.
And finally, Ken Lyon notes the 21 percent service charge "that we inherited when we took over the property" has been removed.
