Where to eat: A Reuben (in the Berkshires)
I often find myself craving different foods while sitting at the front desk. The only way to satisfy those cravings are to: Bring my own lunch, order from Pizza Works, or run over to Subway. Being tight on money typically ends up meaning that there’s only one logical thing to do, and that’s bring my lunch to work. Today my craving happens to be for the toasted goodness loaded with corned beef, pastrami, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing, known only as the Reuben. I was thinking about where I wanted it from. There are a lot of places in the Pittsfield area to get a Reuben, but no location can one up the glorious taste that comes from The Lantern on North Street. My friend first introduced me to the lantern a couple of months ago for that reason alone. I was a little tight on cash, and he dragged me down there, said he’d pay for it if I didn’t like it. I ended up paying. So if you’re as weird as I am, and get mid-day cravings for a great sandwich, look toward The Lantern to serve you up your next one.
Another Great place for a Reuben in the Berkshires is Jonathan's Bistro, just 3 miles down the road from us. Book our ski, dine and stay package with Bousquet or Jiminy, and you'll receive a dining certificate to try theirs out. We also recommend their Mac & Cheese!
