Owned by native chef Joshua Mathers, his namesake eatery serves organic American cuisine in a Colonial house dating back to 1774. The interior blends period detail, such as original fireplaces and pine floors, with contemporary elements like 21st-century bamboo shades and colorful local artwork. Incorporating ingredients from his father Mort's nearby farm, chef Mathers creates a seasonal menu of updated New England classics. Longtime favorites include the crab cakes with lemon-dill aioli, and the Atlantic haddock with caramelized onion crust, chive oil, and wild mushroom risotto. Everything from the bread to the maple ice cream is made from scratch daily.

Insider Tip:

Reservations are often hard to come by, but the staff reserves one table for walk-ins. Arrive early and wait at the bar while sipping signature cranberry or blueberry martinis.
