Northampton/Amherst Area Dining . . . a Retrospective

I moved to Springfield three years ago and travel to Northampton fairly often. While I would agree that fine dining isn't on the menu in this area, I am a big fan of Paul & Elizabeth's. They serve fresh natural food. Mulino's is also good for Italian. No, it's not New York, Boston, or Philadelphia, but there are some decent choices.

I need a little help from my springfield area friends

Latitudes is pricey and not fabulous. It thinks it's a five star restaurant and doesn't make the grade for those who know what fine dining really is. I'm going to give it one more try as I had a crabcake and fried brussel sprouts last time I was there (you can't call a crabcake seared when there is absolutely no crust on it and is obviously baked and the sprouts were really salty. My friends weren't overly-impressed with their meals either). I do want to try the braised beef taco and a couple other items and will make my final determination then. Theodore's for ribs and Southern Comfort food is also a good choice. And the best pizza in the Hood is an MJ's pizza from MJ's on Worthington Street. It's a Greek crust without sauce and has spinach, fresh tomatoes, and feta cheese. It's really good but you don't want to eat there.

Suggestion for restaurants on Cap in Mid-March

I'm taking my niece for a three day stay in Provincetown in mid-March. We're staying on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, so I'm sure restaurants are limited. My niece loves lobster rolls, fried clams, and chowders and will eat any or all of these daily. I'd like something more upscale for a dinner or two and am willing to drive anywhere on the Cap. I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Suggestions for restaurants in Provincetown in March

Hi,

I've never been to the Cap and am taking my niece for a three day excursion to Ptown in mid-March. We're going on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, so I'm sure our restaurant choices are really limited. My niece loves lobster rolls, clam chowder, and fried clams so she'd eat any of those three daily. I'm willing to drive for a good dinner so feel free to recommend upper-cap restaurants. I'm looking to explore as much as possible. Thanks for your suggestions.
