So my family and I will be stopping overnight in Great Barrington en route from Montreal to NYC. We have spent time in the area before and really felly in love with Berkshire Mountain Bakery (two words: Chocolate Sourdough!) and also, Chocolate Springs in Lenox. We also enjoyed the hot dogs at Teo's and there was this restaurant in Pittsfield with the most amazing breakfast / brunch. I cannot recall the name, but I think it may be gone... It was sort of bohemian with really lovely food--I remember having corned beef hash... Oh yeah, we also liked Barrington Bites for cupcakes--and Home Sweet Home for Donuts.... But I digress... These were the positives on our last visit.
On the downside, we were really underwhelmed by all the restaurants we tried for dinner. Full discolosure, we're from Brooklyn where we are inundated with dining choices... At any rate, we ate at a couple higher end spots on our last visit that I cannot recall, except for their total lack of memorable-ness (i know it's not a word) We also ate at Baba Louie--which was fine--at least it was more affordable... For this visit, I would love a great dinner rec--not crazy expensive if possible (entrees below $20)-- in the Berkshires area. We pretty much eat everything, but I would love to avoid burgers and pizza--which we have plenty of in NYC... We'll have a car and are willing to drive beyond Great Barrington..I would also love recs for more places like Berkshire Mountain Bread. This will be our last stop before heading home to Brooklyn, so I'd love to bring home some treats!
Thanks in advance!
