The bounty of the ocean has long yielded delicious fare that also doubles as delicious descriptors for humans—namely, shrimp, crab, and serpent found on 16th-century pirate maps. Eat your way through further water-bred words with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of food at Bistro 127, located in the Yankee Clipper Inn in Rockport. Bistro 127 is open Thursday–Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Bistro 127 sates sea-hungry stomachs with its inventive menu full of chic oceanfood. Drop the anchor of your appetite onto a sharable plate, such as the house-made lump crab cakes ($11) or an order of two shrimp skewers tossed in a sweet glaze sauce and grilled to gastronomic glory ($10). Entrees include the garlic and lobster flat iron, which tops an 8 oz. flat-iron steak with fresh lobster meat and adds asparagus and garlic smashed potatoes to fend off local vampires attempting to go vegetarian ($21). Pan-seared scallops come enveloped in applewood-smoked bacon ($20), and the shrimp scampi tucks shrimp into a culinary cot of roasted tomatoes, linguini, and baby spinach ($17).
Unlike mountaintop hermits or holiday-ruining Dickens characters, Bistro 127 is not averse to large groups of people or special occasions and can accommodate celebratory needs if you call to work something out in advance. Place your sustenance trust in Bistro 127, and enjoy the enticing eats of the earth’s natural, most- volatile water parks.
