The Alvah Stone. Montague, MA.
We had fond memories of The Night Kitchen when we left for California a couple years ago, but once we got back in December of 2014 we couldn’t remember the food so much as the absurdly perfect setting. We heard great things about the new tenant, The Alvah Stone, and were not disappointed on our first visit.
High Horse. Amherst, MA.
Molly and I tried High Horse a few months after it opened 3 years ago. We were living in Northampton at the time. I remember liking it, but then we up and moved to California. With only one meal and a few pints to go on, High Horse faded in memory. Now that we live down the road High Horse has become a favorite.
Mission Cantina. Amherst, MA.
We were stoked when our friend, artist Scout Cuomo, introduced us to Mission Cantina our first restaurant meal back in the Happy Valley. The place is the epitome of charm and after our travels in Oaxaca earlier this year it was nice to see our new love for Mezcal will be well satisfied. We’ve already been back (twice) and we’ve only been in town a month.
Bread Euphoria. Haydenville, MA
The Best Pizza in the 5 college area is at Bread Euphoria. We have fond memories of Hungry Ghost too, but for dining in and pairing great pizza with an equally great beer, Bread Euphoria remains our go to spot.
