|Dinner at the New Sushi House|
05:40PM / Tuesday, February 22, 2011
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — I had a chance to try the new Sushi House on Main Street over the weekend.
First, the interior is very sleek and contemporary with a Japanese feel. The hanging lamps were very cool; the ones over the tables were loglike, the ones over the sushi bar had lovely maple leaves on them.

In fact, I am even smug when I send people to Baldwin's for vanilla extract, or to Rubi's for real, French hot chocolate and an oyster feast (I even know the names and tastes of the oysters nearly every week). So when my boyfriend arrived last Sunday morning with a handful of specialty meats and a jar of sweetish, sharpish gourmet mustard, I knew I had missed something big.
