"Answering the Upper Cape’s call for a neighborhood bistro that serves inventive cuisine in a stylish yet casual atmosphere, Simmer makes its grand debut this summer. With the welcoming vibe of your local Cape haunt effortlessly paired with the sophisticated fare of a downtown city bistro, Simmer is poised to become the area’s go-to spot for creative cuisine in an inviting atmosphere offering solid value.
Taking the place of the former Restaurant Heather, Simmer promises a more relaxed approach to dining while on Cape Cod. With a lower price point, more accessible menu and approachable cocktail and wine list, diners of all ages will appreciate this new Cape dining option.
With close ties to local fisherman and farmers, Executive Chef Don Delinks sources the region for fresh, sustainable fare and seamlessly incorporates it into his creative cuisine. From steamed Nauset littlenecks and Eastham mussels with chorizo, soffritto, garlic and white wine, to a beer-braised pork shank with grilled sweet onions and mustard cider jus, he creates seasonal menus of bright, clean flavors.
To accompany the locally sourced cuisine is a seasonally-based signature cocktail list. This summer’s menu includes Highway Blackberry Cooler, Cucumber Caipirinha, hand-muddled mojitos with fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, Watermelon Whistler, the SG&T, or Simmer Gin & Tonic, and a house made Nantucket Lemonade, served by the glass or by the pitcher. With a small bites menu and highly-skilled bartenders who can craft the perfect cocktail using fresh-squeezed juices and house made syrups, the bar at Simmer is the perfect spot for drinks on the Cape.
With something for everyone, Simmer offers a well-deserved respite for families heading home after a day at the beach. Children can play with complimentary toys, games, sidewalk chalk and sports equipment in the Cape Village courtyard, while parents relax on the expansive outdoor patio with a house made Nantucket Lemonade in hand. In no time, Simmer will become the spot for Cape families craving reasonably-priced, sophisticated food in a casual setting.
Whether dining in the spacious dining room, filled with natural light, tucking into a private high-top in the bar area, taking a seat at the lively bar or relaxing under the warmth of the evening sun on the patio, Simmer provides residents and visitors to the Cape with a perfect neighborhood bistro.
Simmer is financed and overseen by Boston businessman, philanthropist and self-proclaimed foodie, David Mugar, who has a deep-seated passion for all things culinary. Growing up in his family’s supermarket business, he developed his lifelong interest at an early age working in every aspect of the food chain, from butcher to store manager.
Simmer is a neighborhood bistro located at 36 South Street at the South Cape Village in Mashpee, MA in the Upper Cape area. Serving inventive regional cuisine, Executive Chef Don Delinks expertly combines fresh, local seafood and produce to create seasonal menus. From private dining rooms to specialized arrangements for those looking for a unique dining experience, Simmer satisfies every entertaining desire."
