|Jae's Spice in Pittsfield Closes|
09:44AM / Thursday, May 05, 2011
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The long-rumored closure of Jae's Spice has occurred, but over a lease, not sales, according to the parties involved.
Jae Chung's North Street restaurant and Shabu 297, opened in the former Pressbox around the corner, were shuttered Tuesday night.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that business partners Lawrence M. Rosenthal and Joyce S. Bernstein, the restaurants' owners and founders of the original Spice restaurant there, have declined to renew their lease with Chung.
Bernstein told The Eagle they would reopen the North Street restaurant next week as Spice Dragon with Huy Huynh and Phang Huynh, who own 20

|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.
The restaurant wasn't very busy but it was only 5 p.m. on a Friday night. About a half-dozen other parties came and went during our meal. We've heard it's been quite busy later in the evening.
I ordered the fried calimari and Crazy Maki, a six-piece sushi roll with fried shrimp. It was served really beautifully but I was already

|Will the Curse of the Deli Live On?|
|By Nichole Dupont,|
06:47PM / Wednesday, January 19, 2011
GREAT BARRNGTON, Mass. – I like to try new things, for the most part. New colors, new smells, new hairstyles, they all seem so nonthreatening and impermanent, and therefore, safe, maybe even fun. However, when it comes to food, I am a dictator. Not of presentation or even ambiance, but of taste. And this is why, when I had dinner at the Hong Kong Buffet which recently opened on Main Street, I was faced with that one adjective that no restaurant should be; odd. Not quirky and fun, not eclectic or New York deli rude (which would’ve been fine) or uppity or gross, but just odd.
An odd assortment of prepackaged desserts and a
