The Red Pheasant Restaurant Review

: The Red Pheasant is one of Cape Cod's most historic restaurants. Housed in a meticulously restored 200-year-old red barn, the restaurant was opened in 1977 by restaurateur Bill Atwood. Today Bill Atwood, Jr. runs the kitchen, but little else has changed in the restaurant over the years. The Red Pheasant's menu is classic Cape, with an emphasis on local farm products. Dishes include comfort food like linguine and clams and a rosemary marinated pork chop as well as more sophisticated creations like sautéed day boat scallops with hen of the woods mushrooms. We recommend the daily changing game special and, to start, the country-style terrine. The wine list is a highlight. A book full of reds, whites and bubblies offers a voyage around the world. Desserts are classic and simple, and include flourless chocolate cake and tiramisu.
