Holiday period foodie events/recommended venues?

  • 3

Husband and I are relatively new to New England -- but are hosting friends coming up from NC for the Christmas period.
Does anyone out there have a recommendation for where we can take them out, for holiday-related pleasures? We live in western Mass -- can travel to southern VT or NH, anywhere in Mass, or to much of CT.
Looking for something like a festive place for cocktails, holiday-themed evenings/events, festivals of some kind that have a foodie component. We're happiest in venues that are NOT child/family friendly, but will consider ones that are.......
Thanks in advance!

  1. Do you guys like wine? Not holiday themed but I'll bet some of them decorate nicely for the holidays. Try the western CT wine trail: www.ctwine.com. For the western half, I can personally recommend Miranda and Sunset Meadow.

      Ooh great idea and Sharpe Hill is really lovely. I'm not sure what they do for the holidays but that would make for a fun day.

        Sharpe Hill is beautiful but that's pretty far east - I wanted to suggest that along w/The Still River Cafe for brunch (Boston Mag just named it the top foodie destination in New England) but it's pretty far from western MA.
