Great Barrington MA

Heading west and hoping for some thoughts on a couple of great dinners or lunches or breakfasts in the are of GB, Lee, Lenox and otherwise.

  1. Lots of threads regarding the berkshires. Martin's (GB) for breakfast without a doubt. Cakewalk(lee) bakery, sandwiches. Moe's in Lee- microbrews and bar food. Once Upon a Table, Stockbridge bistro. Rouge, W. Stockbridge bistro. Lots to choose from. I suggest perusing the other threads regarding Lee, Lenox and Pittsfield as well.

          It is really lovely: nice homey setting and great food by a French husband and American wife team! Very reasonable considering the quality. If your timing is right, you may catch the jazz pianist I think is there now during dinner. Request the front room, I think it is nicest!

      2. I was planning on Pearl as this trip was inspired by Boston Magazine road trips. Sad news indeed.

          It is unfortunate that Pearl's is no longer...the bar was great for dinner after a 6:00 movie. There is a similar restaurant across the street, Allium, but I would not recommend it unless you do not mind paying quite a bit for portions more precious than those at Wheatleigh. At Pearl's one could get a decent salad; at Allium, a salad is more like an amuse-bouche. I know most people would not agree with me;; I do not mind cost as long as it is value for the money, but after several times of hoping for change, I gave up.

          1. re: AikiLou

            Is there any news as to what will happen to Pearl's (or, at least, the location)?

              I didn't have the heart to ask any locals. So many effected by this tragedy. Walking by, haven never seen the place, it felt so heavy and haunted with loss.
