The Paddock is synonymous with tried-and-true formal dining on the Cape, with sumptuous upholstery in the main dining room and old-style wicker on the breezy summer porch. The authentic Victorian style complements a menu that is traditional yet subtly innovative—fresh ingredients are combined in novel ways: Chatham scrod comes with lemon-thyme bread crumbs and a rich lobster sauce. The steak au poivre, with several varieties of crushed peppercorns, is masterful; the
fire-roasted salmon is stuffed with lobster, goat cheese, and finished with a beurre blanc.
