Camp Fire - Great Barrington, Massachusetts

Located next door to The Meat Market, and owned by its proprietor, Jeremy Stanton (who’s been said to make the best burger in America), Camp Fire’s menu showcases the best seasonal ingredients. The Meat Market Burger ($13) is a half-pound, grass-fed patty served with cheddar, pickles and aioli on a challah bun with a side of hand-cut fries, and it’s delicious. The Reuben sandwich ($10) is the classic, served on grilled Berkshire Mountain Bakery bread, with a side of fries. Breakfast, served on weekends, offers the omelets and pancakes you’d expect, but also a minute steak and a roots veggie hash. Entrees include a sumac roast chicken, grilled pork chop, braised lamb and beef brisket. For those eschewing meat, there’s a grilled brook trout and a vegan plate. The fuss is minimal; the emphasis is on straight-ahead, locally-sourced food in a laid-back setting, and it’s becoming the talk of the town. Read full review here.
