Delicious and inventive desserts, Western Massachusetts!
I'm looking to take my girlfriend on a fun date, and I was thinking we'd bring a bottle of wine to a nice restaurant and just get dessert. So, hounds, where's the best place? I like strange flavors- we're talking balsamic creme brulee, cheesecake gelato, interesting combinations, and preferably somewhere upscale and intimate in the Berkshires. We're in Northampton, Springfield is feasible, and I don't mind driving from here to Hartford and up. Sock it to me!
It is illegal in Massachusetts to bring wine to a restaurant that has a liquor license. Many restauranteurs ignore that...I have been in places where people walk in with their own wine. To me the restaurant owners who allow that are really asking for it, as in: one never knows WHO is at the surrounding tables.
