Ok, after my third visit I can now fully confirm that there is a wonderful little restaurant in Shelburne Falls. Kind of a silly name, Gypsy Apple, but a wonderful place. It's small, maybe 8 tables in the dining room and another 4-6 outside on the patio adjacent to the Deerfield River.
Reasonably priced: entrees run $17-23 and it come with a fresh salad (a hunk of great blue cheese another $2). On last two visits I had a clam/kale/portuguese sausage pasta (12 little necks) and rack of lamb (6 chops). Interesting wine list with a fine selection of wines by the glass @ $5. Had Alsatian apple tart for dessert.
Tables are candlelit with linens.
I hate to crowd this place up with my post but I really hope they succeed. It's my new Northampton/Amherst/PioneerValley/Hilltown favorite restaurant .
Anyone else been there yet?
