Where to eat in the Berkshires/Western Massachusetts


We were slightly late as lunch ends at 3:00 and it was 3:05 but they gladly served us on the beautiful breezy porch. A few other couples came late and they were served too.

You can imagine you're at the beach eating this gourmet meal and the prices here are very affordable considering the uniqueness and care that goes into every dish. Many dinner entrees are in the teens.

There are subtle extra flavors to be found that you have to think about for a while before it finally hits you like the frites...is that sesame seed oil? just a hint? You can have fun describing the food yourself like you would a fine wine and what a fine wine we had. A Barbera d'Alba that was so smooth and mellow that there was no afternoon letdown afterward which is always an issue with day drinking.

We sipped the herbaceous medium-bodied wine and munched on crunchy spicy lemony Ceci Frito (fried chick peas) and a house-made fresh eggplant tomato vegetable soup. We had smoked salmon salad with so many wonderful touches including impeccably selected avocado slices. The hanger steak frites Parisienne was a well chosen modest cut cooked a perfect medium.

We are looking forward to going back because we have to try Adam's famous Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon. Berkshire Homestyle has the recipe in the April issue where Adam says:"you too can make clarified butter, it's easy". We'll just leave the cuisine preparation to Cafe Adam and enjoy their one of a kind meals.

Cafe Adam is no secret but we still have to rave about it. It's that good!
