The Old Mill
The Old Mill (the building was a grist mill in the early 1700s) has been a landmark in the southern Berkshires for almost 40 years, and regulars know that it will retain its revered status for a long time to come. Appetizers range from $8 to $16, but within that spectrum there’s everything from fresh oysters to shrimp prepared several ways to a house-made country pâté to a steaming crock of onion soup gratinee. In season, asparagus, chilled gazpacho, beet salad, a chopped salad with seasonal vegetables and dried cherries, and a delightful offering of burrata, fresh strawberries in balsamic vinegar and rashers of crisped prosciutto are enough to tempt diners to simply order several “first courses.”. The regular menu offers two excellent chicken dishes: a classic chicken parmesan that elevates the dish beyond common standard, and a skillet-roasted organic half chicken prepared with an aromatic blend of roasted garlic, lemon and rosemary. Daily specials offer a third chicken dish, often complemented with wild mushrooms. Grilled lamb chops and two preparation choices of angus strip steak are menu standards with specials adding New England pork and tender, flavorful roast prime rib of beef accompanied, in grand English fashion, with a popover. Entrée prices start at $26. Desserts include profiteroles au chocolate, a menu stalwart — a classic coffee ice cream sundae with elegant chocolate sauce and roasted walnuts — and the dark chocolate semifreddo served with almonds and whipped cream — just the sort of decadence that caps an elegant dinner. The restaurant has a full bar and a tap room, which serves the full dinner menu. Read the full review. The Old Mill 53 Main St., Rte. 23, South Egremont, MA (413) 528-1421 Dinner is served seven nights a week from 5 p.m. with reservations accepted for parties of five or more.
