Mezze Bistro + Bar - Williamstown, Massachusetts

Rural Intelligence FoodAfter fourteen years, Mezze Bistro + Bar has become as integral to life in northern Berkshire County as The Clark, MASS MoCA and the Williamstown Theatre Festival. In June 2010, co-owner Nancy Thomas moved to a new spacious and gracious location just south of town on Route 7. The setting and food could not be more stylish and appropriate for a rural community populated by so many academics and art scholars. A leading proponent of the farm-to-table movement, Thomas encourages chef Joji Sumi to buy as much meat and vegetables as possible from local sources like Cricket Creek and Mighty Food Farms. The menu ranges from an American Charcuterie Plate featuring house-made beef jerky and summer sausage ($10) and roasted beets with Berle Farm yogurt and tarragon oil ($9) to roasted diver scallops with butter-braised radishes ($28) and fettucine Bolognese ($21). —Dan Shaw
