Methuselah Bar and Lounge - Pittsfield, Massachusetts

Local financial advisor Yuki Cohen has surrounded herself with a helpful and happy staff at her newest venture, Methuselah Bar and Lounge. Manager Caitlin Harrison, a level-one sommelier, has stocked the bar with organic wines that use minimal additives and preservatives, 16 beers on tap that change seasonally, and a full bar featuring specialty cocktails and surprise concoctions. The tapas menu was created by Lina Aliberti-Paccaud, owner of the former Spigalina restaurant in Lenox, along with co-chef Gabe Lloyd from How We Roll, and Amber Hemenway. Standout menu items include Turkish Delight, a colorful plate of carrot hummus, beet tzatziki, edamame and feta spread (difficult to pick a favorite among the three, because they’re all so good) arranged around a plate of homemade pita chips ($10); Pigs in a Blanket, which features Red Apple Butchers’ brats and Hosta Hill crimson kraut in a croissant-like puff pastry, served with grainy mustard on the side ($8); and Chicken Tacos or Chile Pork Carnitas ($10 for two/$18 for four). Cheese and charcuterie plates, salads and sandwiches including the popular Cubano-style Pork with slow-roasted pork loin, prosciutto and gruyere ($10) round out the menu. Desserts include Flourless Chocolate Chambord Cake with raspberries and chantilly cream, or the Goat’s Milk Cheesecake with seasonal fruit salad (both $8), as well as Villa Dolce Gelato and assorted sorbets ($4-$6).
