The rustic interior includes harvest-scene murals and tables painted in quilt-style patterns, but it all manages to seem hip—romantic, even, with candles on the table and an all-American wine list. There are more conventional offerings, too, including standout, fresh-caught seafood. If it’s on the menu when you visit, try the American Seasons Fish and Chips: potato-wrapped rare yellowfin tuna with crushed English peas and lemon confit.
