…Great Pizza In The Berkshires
Let’s face it, we all have a favorite style pizza, …or should I say “pie.” Whether it’s Deep Dish, Neapolitan, Stuffed Crust, Wood Fired, Coal Fired, Thin Crust, New York, Greek, Sicilian, or just about any other style of pizza imaginable, chances are you will find it right here in The Berkshires. And with dozens of restaurants and pizzerias to choose from, the Berkshires are truly a “pizza lovers” paradise.
Our “pizza journey” took us from Williamstown in the northwest to Sheffield in the southern Berkshires, bordering Connecticut. In all, we have uncovered 59 chefs serving us “their” version of the Berkshire’s best pizza …and although we haven’t tried each and every restaurant as of yet, we will be visiting the remaining few in the near future. Do you know of one we have overlooked? If so, please let us know and we will be happy to make a visit.
The first stop on our trip was none other than the Colonial Pizza located on Route 2, in Williamstown, which has been serving Greek style pizza in the Berkshires since the 1970’s. In fact, living in North Adams during the 70’s, I can remember ordering pizza from their location on the corner of Eagle and Center Streets, which is now the home of Village Pizza. It was great then and is still great today. They make their dough fresh everyday, grate their own cheese, serve up both white and red pies and offer “half-baked” pizzas for those wishing to finish off their pies at home.
Just a short drive west, on the left, you will find Water Street, which is home to another one of Williamstown’s great pizzas, Hot Tomatoes Neapolitan Pizza. In business since 1994, owner’s John and Angie England turn out some of the best thin crust, New York … more>>>
…Finding The Best Wings In The Berkshires
Creating our Wing Section was a great deal of fun, interesting and at times a bit overwhelming for the palate. In doing so, we also learned that Berkshire County has many outstanding wing restaurants and some pretty bizarre wing flavors to choose from, but most importantly, we learned that people take their wings and bragging rights very seriously.
Whether your love is Plain, Hot, Mild, Atomic, BBQ, XXX, Teriyaki, Bourbon Glazed, Honey Mustard, Roasted Garlic, Szechwan, Jack Daniels, Jamaican, Sweet & Sour, Sweet Chili, or one of the many “Signature House” recipes, you will without a doubt, satisfy any wing craving you may have.
Unlike our pizza journey, where we started in the the Northern Berkshires and worked our way south, this time we decided to start in the middle and “wing it” by heading in any direction our taste buds took us, with plenty of great places still ahead of us on our quest. Do you know of one we have overlooked in our list below? If so, please let us know and we will gladly pay them a visit.
We couldn’t help but notice the number of “Wing Fling” winners located in Lenox. So Lenox it was, with our first stop at a place we visited during our pizza journey …Betty’s Pizza Shack. I said it then, and I’ll say it again, the decor is worth the trip by itself! As for the wings, we tried both the Sweet and Spicy and Blazzin Saddles. The balance between … more>>>
