Hidden away on the second floor of a white clapboard building in downtown Chatham, the Bistro on Main was, for many years, a hidden secret for well-priced seafood dishes and a warm welcome. In 2014, restaurateur Steve Vining moved the restaurant downstairs and added a raw bar, a martini bar, and outdoor seating. Don’t miss the daily happy hour, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., when shrimp, oysters, and clams on the half shell are half-price.
