No one usually associates great dining with vacation hotels, but you will quickly change that perception if you venture to the newly remodeled Sea Crest Resort and Convention Center on Old Silver Beach in North Falmouth on Route 28-A on Buzzards Bay.
And when we say "on", we mean the saltwater is a few feet from your room or suite.
The late "Red" Auerbach either coached, managed or ran the Boston Celtics for 56 years until his death in 2006 and is remembered as a pioneer of modern basketball, redefining basketball as a game dominated by team play and tough defense rather than individual feats and high scoring and introducing the fast break as a potent offensive weapon.
"Red" also was a part-owner of the Seacrest and often brought his team there for R & R.
Now the Seacrest's new owners have named the very hip bistro there for Red.
With all due respect to Red's athletic achievement, future generations may remember him for the bistro named "Red's" in his honor as the Sea Crest Resort on Cape Cod.
And don't let that pub-sounding name fool you, the food ranks with the best we've eaten anywhere, any city, any resort, any country.

On the heels of a $15 million renovation, Sea Crest Beach Hotel is now undergoing its third and final phase of new and renovated facilities which will add a spa and leisure amenities and upgrade the fitness center and indoor swimming pool area at the heart of this transformed family beach hotel. In addition, major improvements at the hotel’s Nauset Conference Center will make the property’s meeting and event space the finest in the area, completing the renewal of the legendary Upper Cape hotel whose history began in 1927 when it opened as a summer playhouse on the sands of Old Silver Beach.
263 guest rooms and suites, some with fireplaces and many with water view private balconies, the hotel is equally ideal for families who seek a beachfront setting in which to create timeless memories, couples drawn by the romance of the Cape, and meeting or wedding planners seeking expansive function space combined with superb dining and warm, personalized service.
