31 ESSENTIAL BERKSHIRES RESTAURANTS ACCORDING TO EATER

Oh hey there. You look hungry. We are too. Just had some UFJoe (it can do that to you).

As you are reading this, you are here either by spirit or song, or because you caught the “Where to Eat in 2022” series by the food gods at Eater, profiling the dynamite local standards, chef-driven standouts, old hat heroes, and the places where everyone knows your names all up and down the far end of the Bay State.

More importantly, they highlighted many found minutes away from our Lee retail cannabis dispensary, which has all kinds of wonderful weed like Smash Hits cannabis and you should buy some because you’re in America, where dreams come true and the weed is legal. Well, at least the last part. And at least here in Massachusetts. For now.

Reminder: We have a good spotlight on some proper Lee spots if you’re looking for things to do in the Berkshires.

Anyway…two of our spots made the cut amongst all the diners, inns, and points of interest available locally. See below.

18. The Farmstead Creamery

535 Summer St
Lee, MA 01238

Join the Jersey cows strolling the fields and taking in the views at this farm and ice cream shop in Lee. Located at High Lawn Farm, the Farmstead Creamery serves flavors like sweet cream, chocolate chip, and purple cow (black raspberry ice cream with white and black chocolate chips). You can stock up on Berkshire provisions at the same time, including cheeses, meats, preserves, pickles, and maple syrup. If you’d prefer savory to sweet snacks, order a cheese and charcuterie platter featuring the dairy’s cheese and local accouterments, and find some seats among the picnic tables outside.

19. Alpamayo Peruvian Cuisine

60 Main St
Lee, MA 01238
(413) 243-6000

Visit Website

Alpamayo has been a local favorite in downtown Lee since 2010, offering Peruvian classics such as lomo saltado and ceviche. Chef Javier Fernandez, who owns the place with his wife, Alicia, was an award-winning bartender, so definitely don’t pass on the cocktail menu, which includes a stunning pisco sour and refreshing chilcano (pisco, ginger beer, lime).

Check the whole post out, as there are plenty of favorites beloved by the team here comprising the best recreational dispensary near New York City in Massachusetts, or even in the Berkshires near the highway. And of the chosen fine dining, nachos emporiums, watering holes, pizza, international cuisine, and gin joints are spread up and down the region from Stockbridge through Great Barrington and way up to North Adams and Mass MoCA territory, as well as a couple flirtations with crossing into bucolic upstate New York just across the border, the list has quite a few stars in the Berkshires dining galaxy.

Yes, classics like the Red Lion Inn and the East Side Cafe in Pittsfield are there, as are some other staff favorites (dear Mooncloud in Great Barrington, we love you and your charcuterie and your house Milk Punch after enjoying our celebrated Massmosa strain from Smash Hits cannabis very very very much).

Which reminds us, we’re still hungry. But we also want something healthy. May have to go make something like this:
