The Berkshires oozes romance. Whether you're here to cuddle up by the fire at one of the area's romantic resorts, or you're just taking a day trip for some quality time together on a nature hike, there's plenty to keep the flame burning while you're here. When you get hungry, don't miss a romantic meal in one of these Berkshire spots:
1. Tanglewood. There's nothing more romantic than a picnic under the stars. Grab a bottle of wine and a blanket, and let the Boston Symphony Orchestra set the mood for your romantic evening at Tanglewood.
2. Brix Wine Bar. For something a bit fancier, try Brix Wine Bar in Pittsfield. The little bistro has a great wine list, as well as aphrodisiac foods like oysters, escargots and lavender crème brûlée.
3. Trattoria Rustica. Also in downtown Pittsfield is Trattoria Rustica, an authentic Italian eatery featuring an ambience that transports you to a little café in Tuscany. Dishes are made in the exposed brick oven kitchen and you can even sit and dine in the outdoor garden.
4. Rouge Restaurant and Bistro. In West Stockbridge, Rouge Restaurant and Bistro serves up French cuisine alongside its signature Crimson Martini (named after the shade of red, which is also the color of love).
