Cape Cod's culinary scene has always had a big seafood flavor, but one major tourism player, the upscale Chatham Bars Inn, is trying something different. It has reopened its traditional eatery, The Main Dining Room, as STARS, with a steakhouse-style menu offering midwestern grain-fed and dry-aged beef. Topping the steak menu is a 22-ounce prime dry age porterhouse for $78. And you know how some places let you pick out your own lobster for dinner? A new very cool thing for beef lovers at STARS is a steak cart that travels the restaurant offering custom sizing, for which you are charged per ounce. Rib eye runs $2.40 an ounce, New York strip $3.20 an ounce and tenderloin $4.70.

If you don't care for beef, other options include things like Fire and Ice, which combines a selection of chilled shellfish with grilled lobster, and "Bacon and Eggs,'' a appetizer that marries grilled pork belly with a poached egg and bearnaise aioli, and lots of other seafood options, all of which you can wash down with a choice of more than 30 local craft beers.
