There are many four-star dinning establishments in Chatham, but one of the  most renown for the delicacy and refinement of its cuisine isn’t on Main  Street….The biggest seal breeding ground in North America is Sable Island, 525 nautical  miles from Provincetown – and that’s a trip a seal will make in a couple of  days.  Researcher Valerie Rough first noticed a branded Canadian seal  showing up on Cape Cod in the 1980s.
