Food & Drink

Here are some of our favorites, but there are lots more we can recommend when you come and see us:

The Lion's Den

Downstairs Pub at the Red Lion Inn.  Food, drink, and nightly entertainment.  Never a cover charge. 


Cool restaurant with a farm-to-table ethos, nice bar and good wine. 

Prairie Whale 

Pioneering Brooklyn restauranteur Mark Firth finally saw sense and moved to the Berkshires. Fabulous modern comfort food, and a great mash-up atmosphere of locals and visitors in the heart of GB.


Small, fresh, and hip. Outstandingly different.  

The Dream Away

Hidden away up in the hills – a classic American roadhouse with eccentric décor to match.


A great by-the-glass wine list and tasty tapas (which seems to add up alarmingly in that way tapas does).

Brick House

A real local hangout Berkshires-style, ie burger meat from local farms and pizza from the amazing Berkshire Mountain Bakery. Good beers, sports on screen, and live music.

Widow Bingham's Tavern

Hearty and savory fare served in a cheerful room adorned with bits of history.


We’re not short of wine stores in the Berkshires, but this is our favourite one, despite the unpromising exterior: owner Eddie is a font of wisdom.


The fact that Josh chose for his website address tells you all you need to know... In the heart of Lee, 'best town in the Berkshires' (because we live there), a truly spectacular beer/bourbon selection and a friendly vibe. No food, but takeout is welcome (we recommend Baja Charlie's for Cal-Mex).

Chez Nous

REAL French food and amazing desserts, prepared with love in Lee by wonderful Franck and Rachel, respectively. Sit at the bar and get to know the locals (like us).

the local standards & variety reflect the fact that nyc is two and a half hours away – without the stress and shouting. These days many places also focus on local provenance, reflecting our country setting.
