A Taste of Great Barrington: Aegean Breeze

Though Great Barrington is a small town, we’ve got a surprising number of excellent restaurants (check out the chart on our website), and a diverse array of cuisine from all around the world. And since we’re surrounded by farms, lots of restaurants participate in the Berkshire Grown program, and even many of our bars serve grass-fed beef, locally grown lettuce, and fresh-baked breads.

From time-to-time, I’ll feature one of our fine dining establishments here on our blog. Today, I’ll feature Aegean Breeze, which offers a special deal for Ski Butternut guests: Show your Ski Butternut season pass or current day’s lift ticket, and they’ll take 10% off the price of your food.


Aegean Breeze is Great Barrington’s Greek restaurant. Run by a 3-generation family, with dad, George, in the chef’s apron, and grandma Kelli, mom Irini, and son Alex serving in a variety of roles. They serve a wide variety of authentic Mediterranean food, and they make you feel like part of the family when you’re there.

For starters, I recommend the Metzedes platters (either the vegetarian or the Aegean), big shareable sampler plates brimming with dips, spreads, and finger foods.

For the main course, their specialty is whole, fresh, wild-caught fish, prepared simply with olive oil and lemon and just a touch of herbs and spices. On Thursday nights, they also serve lobsters. And their extensive list of entrees includes grilled lamb, steak, and shrimp, as well as traditional selections like moussaka and spanikopita. The wine list features wines from Greece, as well as from all around the world.

So check ’em out…and be sure to proudly show your Ski Butternut pass when you do.
