In a gabled country home on Georgica Pond, chefs Robert Hesse and Seth Levine awaken and becalm customers simultaneously as they serve up a style of upscale American fare that is both progressive and traditional. On the covered patio or within the restaurant's intimate dining room replete with exposed beams, patrons may peruse the elegant dinner menu sodden with so many inventive dishes that it cannot mount a high horse. A starter of seared diver scallops ($22) arrives at tables with a clique of country corn pudding, a quail egg, maple-glazed bacon, and an apple-cider reduction, prepping forks for entrees such as the 8-ounce grilled filet mignon ($36), relying on gravity to slow the disappearance of its protein morsels, roasted garlic maître d' butter, and red wine demi-glace. Accompany main mouthfuls with a side of the white-truffle lobster mac n' cheese ($18) or a juice-watermelon-and-heirloom-tomato salad ($16).
