Behind the Line at Cape Cod Room

Cape Cod Room (5937 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach) at the Bath Club is Ken Lyon's, the caterer and restaurateur, new northeast American seafood house specializing in what he calls comfortable, familiar food in a vintage room for a retro dining experience.

Lyon says, "A lot of people in South Florida have roots or went to school in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and they have a fond sort of memory of it. South Florida has a lot of great fish, but the fish and shellfish of the north Atlantic has a whole nother thing going on."

Short Order spent a few hours in the kitchen at the Cape Cod Room on a Friday night and saw lobster, mussels, fish, scallops and more. We even got to try some lobster bisque.

The Cape Cod room's kitchen operated at a frenetic pace with a small staff and a high level of output. Here are some pictures from the Cape Cod Room's kitchen.
