I lately headed as much as the Berkshires for a weekend of snowboarding and winter enjoyable. What I didn’t understand was the Airbnb I booked was hooked up to a properly regarded pizzeria. Pizzeria Boema (84 Foremost Avenue) is situated on the principle avenue (therefore its tackle) of the sleepy city of Lenox, Massachusetts. As soon as my son was asleep every night time, it was a deal with to have the ability to stroll downstairs — child monitor in hand — and revel in a pie and a drink. In case you’re on the lookout for a weekend away that includes some pizza, it doesn’t get extra handy than this.
What’s Distinctive: Pizzeria Boema boasts a full menu of salads and appetizers together with a dozens pizzas + 5 extra vegan pies. I dined there two nights in a row and their Caesar salad was the one underwhelming dish I had. You’re right here for the pizza anyway. Not solely are their pies reasonably priced at lower than $20 every, however there are a variety of free “Add Ons” which different pizzerias may cost you for. They embody: balsamic drizzle, truffle drizzle, scorching honey, basil pesto, truffled balsamic, and ranch drizzle (different additions together with roasted cauliflower and recent arugula will run you $1). The inside of the of the restaurant appears to be like prefer it belongs in Brooklyn. However the place to be is a country, heated barn out again (though given the vary of my child monitor, I opted to eat in the principle restaurant).
What To Eat: The primary night time I dined at Pizzeria Boema, I had a margherita pie (given the free topping additions, I made a decision so as to add basil pesto… they usually didn’t skimp!). The pesto was a pleasant complement to a margheria pie that may have been practically good even with out the addition. On night time two I went for a pie from the “White Pizza” part of the menu: The Garlic Goat (entire roasted garlic clove, goat cheese, completed with recent arugula & a scorching honey drizzle). Whereas post-oven arugula usually makes me really feel like I’m consuming a salad on a pizza, I nonetheless loved this pie. You may by no means put an excessive amount of garlic on a pizza for my part and this one may have used a couple of extra cloves.
What To Know Earlier than You Go: E-book the Airbnb upstairs. In case you’re a mother or father, you may put your child(s) to sleep and stroll downstairs. If there are not any youngsters within the image, all the higher. Drink your method via their intensive wine listing after which stumble residence (no Uber or driving required). Ensure that so as to add a few of their free toppings to your pizzas. And see in the event you can snag a desk of their again barn space. If it’s summer time, pre-game with a hike. In winter, hit up a neighborhood ski resort like Bousquet. You’re lower than three hours away from New York or Boston, making it a super getaway for a protracted weekend.
