20 Railroad Public House - Great Barrington, Massachusetts

Formerly 20 Railroad Street, it’s now owned by Great Barrington native Ben Downing and Laura Shack of Firefly in Lenox. Daily blackboard specials might include potato croquettes ($9), an appetizer served with bright romesco sauce, crumbles of Rawson Brook Farm chevre and a sprinkling of parsley. Other specials have included a fried chicken sandwich served with remoulade, bread and butter pickled peppers and a side of potato salad ($14) and a lamb sandwich boasting caper raisin puree and garlic yogurt on a brioche bun with mixed greens ($15). The mussels ($12) from the “Starters and Shared” section of the menu arrive in a towering heap, bathed in coconut curry, basil, cilantro, mint and scallions, served with toasted focaccia for mopping up the sweet and creamy broth. The poutine ($8) features house-cut potato frites, cheese curds, Guinness gravy and fresh herbs; the Southwestern poutine ($10) substitutes tomatillo salsa, pulled pork and cilantro for the cheese curds and gravy. There’s also a Reuben ($14) and a kale salad ($9) served with roasted grape tomatoes, creamy manchego dressing, Aleppo pepper and manchego tuile. Ten taps will keep the beer enthusiast happy, and craft cocktails will do the same for others. Read the full review here.
