Eating in the Berkshires
This recent post on Huffpo has an interesting take on Berkshire eating:
I agree. The byline says the blogger is a writer for Conan O'Brien. If this column is representative of his writing, I guess I won't need to bother watching Conan when he makes his return to TV on cable soon. I would guess the writer never tried to eat at Brix, Old Mill, Inn on the Green, John Andrews or Chez Nous. It's just easier to be an arrogant wiseass New Yorker who is too lazy to actually do the research on fine dining in the Berkshires.

Having had many great meals in the Berkshires, I can say with conviction that his writer is an idiot and entirely unfunny to boot.
Ignorant article. Plenty of great restaurants in the Berkshires -- see chowmensch's post. Also Viva and Once Upon a Table in Stockbridge, and Xicotencatl, Bizen and Great Barrington Brewery in Great Barrington, just to add a few.
I've spent a couple of decades hanging out in the Berkshires and actually checking out its food, not to mention observing its people, so here's my take on this Guy's article:
Uninformed? Probably. Uninformative? Definitely. Funny? Not.
Oh well, yet another reason to feel sorry for Conan O'Brien.
