Brothers Tyler and Jesse Rice put a real farm, 3½ acres, on the table, not just herbs but their own vegetables, day fresh eggs and ricotta. Beef is Seminole Pride, sausage and cornmeal are Bradley’s. The menu is down-home and modern chef smart, from crabcake with creme fraiche to creme brulee du jour.
