Brava - Lenox, Massachusetts

For those of us who like to dine after we’ve seen a movie, play or concert, Brava is a revelation—a place to eat well and unwind until midnight in downtown Lenox. A wine bar in the European tradition, Brava offers an extensive assortment of craft beers and wines by the glass as well as nibbles like marinated olives or Marcona almonds ($3 each) or more substantial fare like fragrant grilled lamb chops with minted yogurt ($15) or shrimp with garlic ($12). You can build your own cheese and charcuterie plates ($17/$28) and select from a menu that features several raw cow’s milk cheeses made in the USA. To make sure Brava was not seen as elitist or precious, owner Whitney Asher cleverly put hearty hand-made pizzas — with combinations like prosciutto, fontina, ricotta and arugula — on the menu ($13 - $15), that make the bar a family-friendly destination in the early evening. —Dan Shaw
