The University Club’s New England roots are evident not just in its creamy, New England-style clam chowder, but in its very building. Nestled in two colonial-era farmhouses, one of which is the oldest, most wrinkly house in Amherst, the eatery is a venerable institution to the history of Massachusetts. The Boltwood-Stockbridge house contains the Daniel Chester French room, named for the Lincoln Memorial Statue sculptor who lived there as a child, and the Tory room, where nine loyalists hid during the American Revolution.

Today, the loyalists have given way to diners feasting on fare that changes with the seasons. Dinners consist of upscale proteins such as new york strip steak, braised lamb shank, and pan-seared salmon complemented by a farmer’s-market risotto loaded with fresh local produce. Alternatively, lunchtime visitors—or diners sampling the bar’s lighter fare menu—can nosh on a Black Angus burger or a jalapeño crab-cake po' boy.

Guests can guzzle a regular cup of brewed coffee or add a splash of caramel-flavored milk, making sips as sweet and warming as a thank-you letter from a cupcake ($1.50–$3.21). After a hot cup of joe, cool off a piping-hot palate with the chai vanilla frozen blender—an enchanting swirl of homemade masala and exotic spices ($4.25). Acquire daily servings of fruits and breads without sneaking into the food pyramid with a fruit smoothie made of freshly squeezed orange juice ($4.50) and a bagel smeared with specialty olive or vegetable cream cheese ($3.30).

At Baku’s African Restaurant, which On the Menu calls “the place to go,” Nigerian-born Chichi Pat Ononibaku shares her love of made-from-scratch African fare with a menu of dishes crafted from recipes passed down through her family. Diners kick back while surrounded by tropical murals and yellow walls, peering into the kitchen where Ononibaku whips up black-eyed-pea fritters ($4.95). On the Menu says Baku’s African Restaurant “makes it impossible for its patrons not to love plantains,” which accompany the signature jollof rice along with curry chicken ($11.95) for a dish that’s more memorable than a baby panda handing you a winning lottery ticket. Savory aromas waft from curry goat meat, salmon, or lamb draped in the restaurant’s specialty curry-tomato sauce ($12.95–13.95). The gluten- and lactose-free menu also features pounded yams served with thick West African melon seed soup or nigerian stew ($12.95). The cozy dining room fills quickly with the clink of glasses bearing cinnamon iced tea ($1.95) or mango juice ($3.95), so some visitors may choose to take their meals to go or call ahead to make sure there’s space.
