Arborvine

American in Blue Hill

One of the most famous restaurants on the peninsula, Arborvine serves up farm-to-table delicacies in an elegant 1823 Cape-style house. Start with Bagaduce oysters or brie in puff pastry with dates and almonds, then move on to creative main courses such as seared scallops on wild rice pilaf or roast duckling with apple-ginger chutney.

As with other popular Blue Hill restaurants, it's best to reserve ahead.
