Cape House is a seafood shack in East Williamsburg/Bushwick. There are cocktails on tap, lots of wine and beer options, and of course, seafood. You’ll find everything from raw bar to clam strips to market vegetables here, with the occasional random Korean or Thai ingredient mixed in. They’re open all year, but the best time to visit is when it’s warm, and you can sit with a big group at one of the picnic tables outside.
