The Sierra Grille, Northampton
We were visiting Northampton this past weekend and literally stumbled upon this restaurant, lucky us. The place is lovely with warm dark wood and lots of sophisticated art, there was a jazz combo playing cool music and a good vibe. The menu featured appetizers, panins and small plates as well as entrees. There was a great wine list as well as a very impressive list of interesting draft beers. Our waitress was friendly and warm and very knowledgeable about both food and drink. It was late in the evening after a day of nibbling, we chose a combination of panini, appetizers and small plates and all were outstanding, there wasn't a single misstep. It was a fabulous casual dining experience that I would highly recommend to one and all, I can't wait to go back
Do they still do that 'create your own ending' menu where you pick a protein, then a sauce and the sides to go with it? I think that whole thing is wicked stupid. I don't know what your sauces taste like..your the chef- you tell me what works well together. I know some people like this sorts thing but as I said, I think it is wicked stupid. I hope they don't do it anymore.
