Head into the famous Lobster Pot restaurant and pick a crustacean right out of a tank, or try the baked scallop au gratin, which melts in the mouth. Its bar, called The Top of the Pot, is a super fun spot to enjoy drinks and appetizers with a small group of friends.
Provincetown Books has been a key spot in town since Paul Smith opened it in 1940, though the building that houses it at 246 Commercial St. was built around 1850 by Capt. Philip Cook. Because of its big window, in which new books by local and national authors are continually rotated, it was called the Port-Hole Building. Filmmaker-writer John Waters worked there for years starting back in the 1960s and is still a regular customer.
