Cape Cod Tea Garden

Hong Ting Wong, an artist and one of Provincetown’s best known restaurateurs in the 1930s and 1940s, operated the Cape Cod Tea Garden in this little building next to the old Arnold’s store. Besides chow mein, once could also buy Wong’s paintings. “The subjects include portraits, still lifes and Provincetown scenes, and are spoken of with keen regard and admiration by members of the Art Colony,” The Advocate stated. (“Wong Exhibits Paintings,” The Advocate, 2 July 1931.)
