ONE OF ONLY 73 IN THE WORLD AND THE ONLY NEW FIVE-STAR RESTAURANT RECIPIENT IN 2021
Chatham, MA – Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas, today announced its 2021 Annual Star awards. Wequassett Resort and Golf Club’s signature restaurant, twenty-eight Atlantic, was awarded the esteemed Five-Star rating. The Resort has also proudly held the Five-Star distinction for six consecutive years.
A Cape Cod tradition for generations, Wequassett is an exquisite hideaway spanning 27 pristine waterfront acres surrounded by lush gardens overlooking tranquil Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic beyond. Accommodations are housed in 27 buildings of Cape Cod-style architecture and include 120 luxurious guest rooms and suites reminiscent of comfortable seaside residences. Amenities include two magnificent pools, two private beaches, four tennis courts, five diverse restaurants, boating and sailing, children’s programming, and championship golf at the prestigious Cape Cod National Golf Club.
The resort’s signature restaurant, twenty-eight Atlantic, housed in an 18th century sea captain’s home overlooking Pleasant Bay is one of the most stunning settings in New England. The décor of the restaurant incorporates many fine features such as an exposed wine rack, beautiful fireplace, rich wood paneling, period lighting fixtures and marine art. Noted Executive Chef, James Hackney, helms the kitchen and relishes the region’s fresh native seafood and indigenous ingredients from artisanal farms. Chef Hackney is passionate about creating exquisite seasonal tasting menus with superb wine pairings.
“We are thrilled that twenty-eight Atlantic has been added to the coveted Five-Star status and very honored that the Resort has been recognized as Five-Star since 2016, a gratifying accomplishment for our talented and devoted staff. Our quest to elevate twenty-eight Atlantic’s rating has been truly embraced by our entire team and I am so grateful for this distinction, particularly during such a challenging time,” said Mark Novota, Managing Partner of Wequassett Resort and Golf Club.
Forbes Travel Guide is the world-renowned expert in genuine Five-Star service, and Wequassett’s signature restaurant, twenty-eight Atlantic is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star Rating list. Properties were inspected prior to the pandemic and when regional restrictions allowed for the safe return of guests.
“We are delighted to have twenty-eight Atlantic as the sole addition to our list of Five-Star restaurants for 2021. Wequassett Resort and Golf Club offers some of the most dedicated and passionate leaders and staff in the industry, having already achieved a Five-Star rating for the hotel for the past six years. Both awards are notoriously difficult to achieve, and the restaurant honor, in particular, not only looks at service and facility but also the culinary expertise demonstrated by the chef and his brigade. Wequassett is one of just six hotels in the world to boast a Five-Star hotel and restaurant and the only one in the beautiful Cape Cod region with that title. We send our congratulations to the entire team on this significant achievement and wish everyone a successful 2021 summer season ahead,” said Filip Boyen, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide.
