Despite setbacks including intermittent rain and no power to the building for at least an hour mid-day, our James Beard Foundation Celebrity Chef dinner called “Starry Starry Night” came off in style this past Tuesday evening August 13, 2013. We started the night before, renting a truck and emptying the restaurant of all it’s furniture [...]

We are hosting a James Beard Foundation Celebrity Chef dinner tonight, raising money for Falmouth Hospital. One hundred lucky guests will dine under a tent next to Quicks Hole (our farm-to-table restaurant) overlooking Woods Hole harbor and under the stars. This will be a summer meal to remember… The meal is being prepared by Chef [...]
Much happens behind the scenes to get Quicks Hole ready to re-open in the spring — dusting off the bar stools, scrubbing the floors, fire inspections and so much more! But the most exciting thing each year is rolling out our mascot, the lobster. This large fiberglass object is the source of endless street happiness [...]
Last week, Stephanie Mikolazyk and I were honored to “guest chef” at one of the most famous restaurants in America — Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. Head chef Cal Peternell invited us (as he will be coming to Woods Hole this summer for an epic farm-to-table dinner at our restaurant Quicks Hole on August 13th) [...]
The Woods Hole film festival is in full swing this week. Lauren Greenfield, director of the hot new documentary Queen of Versailles stayed with us at the Woods Hole Inn, and she screened her incredible movie to a stunned Woods Hole audience on Sunday night. Lauren’s gift is capturing the zeitgeist, and she sure did it [...]
This is a big week at the Woods Hole Inn as we unveil the five new rooms on the second floor of the Inn. Last night, we hosted an opening party catered by Quicks Hole, with beer from Cape Cod brewery and wines provided by Travessia Urban Winery. Le Tout Woods Hole was there munching [...]
The sky was glowering when I biked out of Woods Hole on the Shining Sea bike path yesterday, with a blustery wind blowing from the southeast which is where the summer storms blow in from. The breeze was warm enough, it was cool and pleasant, a perfect day to explore. The bike path, which is [...]
We have hosted countless bridal brunches, catered many bridesmaids luncheons and launched quite a number of rehearsal dinners. Offering the accommodations for the bridal party, or the extended family of the groom? Done that many times over. But with only room for about 70 guests in the waterview terrace, I will be the first [...]
I will be the first to admit…a few months ago I did not really “get” Twitter. What was that crazy feed of posts and who were all these people posting? What was with the “#’s” all over the place and why were people so comfortable with the outrageous statement? It all seemed totally crazy to [...]
At the Woods Hole Inn, we often spend a lot of time on the “table” part of farm-to-table but today I got to head out into the field and see one of the farms that we source food from in the summer. Coonamessett Farm was founded over 30 years ago by Ron Smolovitz, who along [...]

Quicks Hole travels to the Martha’s Vineyard Chilifest – a day in photos.
Downstairs from the Inn, we are lucky to be neighbors with an amazing little restaurant called Quicks Hole. Open for lunch and dinner, this place is beyond the bomb-dot-com. Our favorite part about it is their commitment to going green. Like us, they support local farmers and fisherman, use compostable takeaway products and generally do [...]
Lobster Tacos are a sublime idea. Cold succulent lobster lightly dressed. Fresh cut red cabbage, a touch of lime on a hot corn taco?? Incredible. New to Woods Hole this summer, the lobster taco is an inspired fusion of traditional Cape Cod with a dash of innovation from the surf shacks of Baha California. Don’t [...]
