Southfield Store - Southfield, Massachusetts

Rural Intelligence Food The Berkshire Babe was in heaven. “Wow!“ she said. “This is the best mole I’ve ever had—it’s sweet, smoky, spicy, with layers of flavors. It gets better with every bite.“ the mole, which was served with an astonishingly juicy and flavorful pork tenderloin ($23), is on the menu every Thursday when the Southfield Store has its Oaxacan Night. Since last year, the Southfield Store—an old general store that was gentrified in restrained Martha Stewart-style by a previous owner—has been owned by Peter Platt and Meredith Kennard of the redoubtable Old Inn on the Green. Now, they’ve let their chef—Gustavo A. Perez who worked with Peter at Wheatleigh years ago—cook the food of his native state on Thursday nights. “It’s hard to find real Mexican food in the Berkshires,“ says Perez, who makes every taco and tostado to order. “That’s why the food comes out slow, but I think it’s worth it,“ he says. It certainly is.
