Tim McNulty, the owner and chef behind Provincetown icon the Lobster Pot, is putting the restaurant up for sale for $14 million. The Boston Globe reports that the listing, which includes the building, equipment, and well-recognized brand, went up earlier this week, on Tuesday, January 17.
“We’ve done this our whole lives, we’re just getting a little older, and so it’s time to start thinking about that,” McNulty told the Globe. His family has owned the restaurant for the past 44 years, and McNulty himself has been a chef there since graduating high school. He hopes that the new owner will continue to run the Lobster Pot in its same form — and that he’ll be able to stay on as a chef if the new owner is willing, according to the Globe.

Witchy Back Bay bar Hecate refreshes its cocktail menu
The bar launched “Volume II” this week, debuting their second cocktail list since opening last year. The drinks “are inspired by the occult” with ingredients “based on cultural heritages spanning the globe,” according to a press rep. That translates into cocktails like the Emerald Tablet (named after the Hermetic text), which is a Bee’s Knees and gimlet hybrid with Porcera gin, fig leaf cordial, ras el hanout honey, black lime, and starchy aquafaba.
