Chef Ted Mahoney
Ted began his cooking career while still in high school, spending his summers in the kitchen of Captain Higgins (now The Pearl) restaurant in Wellfleet. He attended Norwich University in Vermont, and soon became the kitchen manager of Miguel’s Stowe Away, an authentic Mexican restaurant with an international reputation. He returned to the Cape for a long stint at the Lobster Pot in Provincetown, before heading to the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley to apprentice with Master Chefs in a special program designed for experienced chefs.
TripAdvisor Review: August 2016
Excellent Cape Seafood!
My husband and I were visiting the Cape at the beginning of August and Mahoney’s was recommended by our innkeepers. So glad we decided to go. For starters, we shared Seafood Cakes as an appetizer- and what a delicious choice! With big pieces of tasty fish, including shrimp, scallops and crab, the consistency preparation and seasoning were all perfect. I had the over-roasted Cod Provencal as my main course- another winning dish! Would recommend this restaurant to others for sure.
