Behind the Scenes at a Seafood Restaurant

My favorite restaurant besides my mom’s kitchen is Haddad’s Ocean Cafe. Haddad’s is a local restaurant in Brant Rock, Massachusetts.  Over the past few years, my family has gotten to be good friends with one of the owners, Chuck.  Chuck is really nice and everyone likes him because he comes out to talk to all of the customers while they’re eating.  He also let me take you on a tour through the kitchen!  So enjoy! 🙂
