The country charm of this quaint cottage belies the level of culinary chops that will impress even a hardened city slicker. With knotty pine tables, well-worn plank floors, and a wood-burning oven, the space is delightful. A perch at the chef’s counter affords a great view of the action. Here, Chef Ari Weiswasser showcases his signature style via the use of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern ingredients. Imagine wood-roasted asparagus with lavash crackers and shaved radish over a tangy hen egg emulsion; or chicken cooked under a brick with coconut curry and sticky rice. Daily pizzas like the tomato-cream pie with Turkish chilies are also a thrill. Save room for house-made ice cream in flavors like vanilla maple Bourbon, salted peanut butter, or peach verbena.
