For true foodies, there is nothing more exciting than trying out a new restaurant, especially in a beautiful, fun location! Visiting a new restaurant gives you the opportunity to visit a new place that you have not been before as well as be introduced to some unique dishes and drinks that you have never tried. And, what is better than trying out a new place that you know is “foodie accredited?” This week, we’re featuring some of “Britt’s Best Bites’” favorite coastal locations that are an absolute must to add to your restaurant bucket list.

Cape Cod & Islands: Dennis, MA : Encore Bistro and Bar
Encore is a great place to go if you are looking for some fine dining, a bar to grab a quick drink and bite to eat at, or if you are looking for some nice ambiance!

The restaurant is also conveniently located on the grounds of the “Cape Playhouse” so you can make a full night out of your visit.
