When I want to show guests — especially from the city — the essence of country life, I take them to Pickity Place. On a winding country road, just after the pavement ends, we take a left at the welcoming sign. There, an old red Cape houses a unique restaurant. We check in at the reception desk in the tiny bookshop. (If we’ve brought a bottle of wine with us, we leave it with the reservationist. The accommodating staff opens and serves it.) The prix-fixe lunch is seasoned with spices and adorned with edible flowers and herbs chosen to enhance each of the five courses, from soup to dessert. Before or after lunch, we’ll wander among the garden beds, where signs invite us to touch the herbs. We visit the greenhouse and gift shop, offering loaves of the bread of the month in addition to country gifts and food items.

Menu changes monthly. Reservations strongly recommended: The three daily seatings (11:30 a.m., 12:45 p.m., and 2 p.m.) fill up quickly. A fourth seating (at 3:30 p.m.) is often added.
