If you get sick of peanuts and Cracker Jacks, The Berkshires have plenty of options in fine dining available. Some of these great restaurants offer French, Italian, Asian, Mediterranean, Indian, and Mexican cuisines. But of course, there are others that serve the local favorites.  Families can book a table at a classy French restaurant or grab a seat at a pub. Whatever you get a craving for, The Berkshires have it.
