Historic Restaurants of Cape Cod


Chris Setterlund to Speak on his recently released book Historic Restaurants of Cape Cod at Bridgewater Public Library on Wednesday, September 13th @ 6:30 pm.

Thousands of restaurants have come and gone on Cape Cod over the past century. Some, however, made an indelible mark. Bill and Thelma's were hugely popular with students from the 1950s to the 1970s, often packed with locals after sporting events and dances. Starbuck's Restaurant in Hyannis featured the Chief Justice Warren Burger Burger and the Larry Bird Burger on its menu and boasted of the soup du jour, "We don't know what it is, but we have it every day." Opinions differ on how the Reno Diner actually got its name, whether from a broken sign or a local appliance company. Author Christopher Setterlund details the history of the iconic establishments of the Cape, still fresh in the memories of patrons, complete with famous recipes.

Chris is a 12th generation Cape Codder with some famous names from the area decorating his family tree. His vivid descriptions and crisp photos help paint pictures for the reader, making them feel as if they are walking in his footsteps.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public will include a book signing.
