Aubergine-how is it these days?

  • j

I had a wonderful meal there a couple of years ago and am thinking of returning there when I'm in the area. haven't seen much word on it on these boards in the past few years. So, how is it these days?

  1. Aubergine in Columbia County NY? Hillsdale? My husband and I eat there foten when we're at our country home. Still wonderful by our accounts.

    1. Aubergine in East Syracuse? I thought it closed.

            That's a shame. I'm not around there too often, but really liked the place. Can you guys suggest something Aubergine-like in the nearby Columbia County/Berkshires area.

              You might consider John Andrews also on Rt 23 but further east nearer Great Barrington. Is is superb. Great food, wine list and service. NOT cheap by any means. There have been many posts on this site regarding John Andrews just search back to fill in on more info.

                I was considering John Andrews for a birthday dinner this weekend, but friends tell me it's kinda snotty w/ NYC'ers. True?

          2. Steele from Sylvanus Lodge has some reviews of local eateries:

            The Greek place in Great Barrington is good

            But as far as places like Aubergine around there (jdf), depends what you mean. Aubergine was a unique experience. That was our place to go for special occasions.

            1. I'm so upset this place closed! Their wine list was to die for!

              1. I agree that John Andrews is great and Verdura in Great Barrington is good also.
