Dinner in the Berkshires: Nudel

After a long day of shopping and visiting a crazy roadside attraction, were hungry and in the Berkshires. To Nudel it was! A fine restaurant in Lenox, MA where we would enjoy a charming dinner. The chow was fantastic. We ordered three small plates and a small portion of pasta. This was a perfect amount of food for two ravenous souls. Our favorite small plate was the fish cake of smoky arctic char, the fish & sauce were off the hook! Try not to lick the plate this is a classy joint.

Came with tasty toast as well, mmmm.


The chicken skin tacos were finger-lickin good, how can you go wrong with chicken skin? Answer: you can’t. Not here at least!

The service was great, I drink a ton of water so I loved that they gave a carafe and refilled it before I ever need to ask. It is a small place. The atmosphere is intimate, there is local art on the walls, you can see the chefs cooking if you sit at the bar. We came at 5:30, exactly when they open, and some of the few tables were already taken. By the time we were finished with our meal the place was pretty much at capacity, so I would suggest getting here as early as possibly if you don’t want to wait, they do not take reservations. Scrumptious dinner, perfect ending to a great daytrip in Massachusetts!
