Where to eat in the Berkshires/Western Massachusetts


This had to be one of our most perfect evenings in the Berkshires. Dining al fresco with a red barbaresco on the beautiful porch with sun slowly setting you think you've died and gone to heaven.

The baby clams are in a delightful sauce which is a lighter take on the traditional wine butter garlic parsley classic and is good with white or red wine.

The parmesean encrusted asparagus is a plentiful pile of fresh spears that are covered in a browned layer of freshly grated and well aged cheese crust. In every bite you get the combination of two very strong tastes that blend surprisingly well.

The pork chop entree we had was covered in a delicious carmelized mushroon and onion sauce that did not overpower the flavor of the well trimmed chops but did hide them a bit. A very good choice especially if you are one who likes their meat delicately prepared. The goat cheese stuffed tomatoes are where the chef's expertise really shows, a flavour we won't offend by trying to describe it. Just get it and you'll see for yourself.

Steve ordered the Carbonara which is one of his all time favorite dishes. It was made al dente with fresh eggs, virgin olive oil, parmesean and flavourful pancetta.

So this might just be that perfect video we've been searching for that makes people take notice and want to visit the Berkshires again and again. We hope so. So get on your Frankie and head on over!
