On a trip to the Berkshires last week while touring Mass MoCA in North Adams we met a gentleman who lives part of the year in Williamstown where we would be staying the next two nights. His recommendation for the best restaurant was Hops and Vines and we certainly weren't disappointed with the choice. Essentially two eateries in one, Hops appears to be a beer-garden with picnic tables and communal seating, while Vines is a brasserie and geared to wine. (There is a Hops pub menu, but evidently the Vines dinner menu can also be ordered there.)
We opted for dinner at the Vines portion and started with the Bacon and Nut Brittle (mixed nuts and crumbled black pepper and maple bacon) which we rated as good, but our entrees were excellent. Their meats are local from Vermont Family Farms, the pork pasture-raised and finished with vegetable feed; the grilled pork loin was over the top. Also, their "lamb chop" turned out to be two ample chops, done perfectly. My wife and I shared the Coffee and Donuts dessert, tiny donuts with an espresso dipping sauce, giving it a good rating.
They have an extensive wine list, but we ordered by the glass and our server came back for another selection as the first I ordered wasn't available. A minor point knock-off. Otherwise the service was excellent, prompt and friendly. We would definitely return if again in the area.
