Erica runs The Pheasant, formerly The Red Pheasant, with her husband, Adam. They bought the restaurant in 2018 from long-time owners, Bill and Denise Atwood. Erica and Adam renovated the more than 250-year-old property, fixing a key fixture: the sliding barn doors to allow them to close off the garden room for private events.
At The Pheasant, they work closely with local farmers and fishermen to source seasonal ingredients to create dynamic and bold flavors and made-from-scratch menus. The style of service at The Pheasant can be best described as casual fine dining: refined and inventive food, with a relaxed attitude, according to their website.
Erica also co-owns Dunn & Sons Wine at 13 Willow St., Yarmouth Port. The specialty wine shop feature wines from small producers with an emphasis on sustainable farming practices and minimal intervention in the cellar and winemaking process, according to their website.
Erica grew up in Millburn, New Jersey, and went to the University of Vermont. In 2014, Erica and Adam married at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. Adam spent his summers vacationing with family on the Cape, so when they started thinking about starting their own family, Cape Cod was a natural fit. The couple have two children, Leo and Charlie.
