Review by Nancy Walman
Award-winning website, Punchin-dot-com, features the Walman Report and reviews of restaurants, travel, wine and theater. Aegean Breeze, a restaurant with tasteful diversity in the cozy town of Great Barrington, brings a satisfying blend of American and Authentic Greek cuisine to the Berkshires. Chef-Owner George Cami is revered for his specialty, “grilled whole fish” and magnificent hot and cold appetizers. You’ll know you’re in capable hands when you see that this is a real family operation.
But that’s not all chef Cami has us his sleeve. His egg-lemon soup is a meal in itself and the best we’ve ever tasted. All mixed appetizers, whether hot or cold are outstanding, as in the light pita bread. Sure the fish is outstanding (especially the Loup de Mere), but go on Thursdays and it’s “lobster night.” Not a very Greek tradition, but hey you’re in New England and they are fabulous and bargains, as is all the food. Other surprises include incredible calves liver with onions and a knockout Lasagna. The dessert star is a warm rice pudding-custard with a brulee topping.
Lunch and Brunch offer delights of their own. The Gyro, omelets , crab salad and fresh watermelon are divine. (And what Sangria)!
If you are there for the day to browse for antiques or ski mountain slopes, Aegean Breeze provides a great meal and cozy atmosphere. Besides those dips and seafood, salads, vegetables, grilled meats, poultry, and just about everything on the menu is perfect.
Experience the Greek isle living during the warmer months under the tarp on the outdoor bistro style patio. Or warm up indoors by the fireplace in a relaxed rustic wood setting, featuring an attractive bar and an extensive wine list.
Don’t miss the New York style martinis, severed in beautiful glassware, they are remarkable.
Aegean Breeze, 327 Stock bridge Road, Great Barrington Massachusetts, is one of America’s great Greek restaurants. But more then that, it is is Great Barrington institution, a home away from home and slice of the Aegean, brought to New England. Chef Cami and his charming wife make everyone feel like a welcomed friend. Aegean Breeze is a personal favorite and rates “A Major” on The Walman Report.Aegean Breeze – http://www.aegean-breeze.com/
