Men’s Magazine Highlights The Berkshires
"The mountains of western Massachusetts are a haven for hedonists", is what the subtitle read, not exactly your typical description of a county who boosts an average age of 48 and where 22 percent of the population is over 68 years old.
Men's magazine Maxim took a refreshing look at the restaurant scene in The Berkshires, making comparisons to food meccas like New York City, Chicago and even Tel Aviv.
The article entitled "Eat and Drink Your Way Through The Berkshires", would be more aptly titled "eat and drink your way through South County", but we'll let it slide this time. While the publication does mention cultural gems like Tanglewood and The Clark Art Institute, the authors have made it clear, this trip was solely for the eats and drinks.
Favorites from the tour include Prairie Whale in Great Barrington for the perfect cocktail, and Bagel & Brew in Lenox if you're looking for the best beer. For a gourmet meal, the roving journalists selected Cafe Adam also in Great Barrington, and recommended live music afterwards at the Lion's Den at the Red Lion Inn, a staple in downtown Stockbridge. They stopped by fan favorite The Olde Heritage Tavern in downtown Lenox and deemed it the best place to watch a game, and praised it's neighbor across the streeet, Brava for the best late night action in the area.
While this visit did focus on South County, we love when any part of our little corner of planet is shared with the world and applaud Maxim for giving it's 9 million subscribers a taste of what we have to offer. Check out the whole article here.
