Open the door to Jack's Hot Dog Eagle Street eatery and several things hit the consciousness: the sizzle of a hot grill, the crowd jam-packed at the counter, and the organized chaos guided by cook and business owner Jeff Levanos. First opened in 1917 by Levanos' grandfather Jaffros Levanos, the small but wildly popular business has stood the tests of the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, World War II, the economic booms of the 1950s and '60s, the fuel crisis of the '70s, and the economic downturns of the 1980s and 1990s. With the turn of the century and what many believe is the turn of fortune for the city, Jack's thrives from it's street-facing niche within one of the city's most historic regions. ...Show MoreView Less

Inspired by international flavors and seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and food makers, John Andrews Farmhouse Restaurant is located in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, a region known for its vibrant food culture and rich agricultural history. Since 1990, chef-owner Dan Smith has been offering a unique taste-of-place dining experience, long before farm-to-table was a trend. Dan’s restaurant was named World’s 25 Best Farmstead Experiences by The Daily Meal – the fastest-growing food site on the web – and was one of only two U.S. destinations in the Northeast selected.
Built in the late 1700s, the restaurant offers rustic, country charm highlighting natural beauty in the Berkshires. Our stunning setting is surrounded by beautifully landscaped perennial gardens and sweeping views of the neighboring forest include an old icehouse built as part of the original farmstead. Guests enjoy a cozy fireplace in winter months and, in summer, al fresco dining is available on the terrace. We offer an extensive wine list, full cocktail bar and a lighter fare bar menu.
Chef Dan holds a strong commitment to locavore principles supporting local farmers and artisan food makers in the Berkshires, Hudson Valley and Northwestern Connecticut. He develops his menu around regional producers and is inspired by the produce they bring to his kitchen door. If a farmer visits the restaurant in the morning, Dan will work their ingredients into his menu that same evening.
The restaurant is a bit off the beaten track yet just two and a half hours from New York or Boston. Located in South Egremont, Mass., the restaurant is a stone’s throw from Hillsdale, NY, very close to the state border. The restaurant serves visitors from the Berkshires and Hudson Valley year-round and a multitude of out-of-town visitors during summer months plus fall foliage and ski seasons. In addition to The Daily Meal accolade, John Andrews Farmhouse is a Lonely Planet Top Choice and has been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, Yankee Magazine Editor’s Choice and the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. ...Show MoreView Less
