Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of American offerings with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of American fare at Four Main Street Bar and Grill in Huntington.
Chef John Slattery and his team of charcoal champions serve a loaded menu of comfort dishes and seafood specialties. Carnivorous explorers can excavate the seared cuts of a chopped steak from a cascade of creamy brown gravy ($8) or treat chompers to velvety forkfuls of boneless pork chops ($7.95). Well-known local towns, flavors, and UFO sightings are showcased in Hilltown Tours platters such as the Middlefield, which includes a warm tomato wrap stuffed with seasoned turkey, applewood-smoked bacon, and a fusion of melted cheeses ($8.25). Available after 5 p.m., evening fare is highlighted by the lobster potpie ($19.95) and seafood casserole, which unites scallops and scrod in a sherry lobster sauce, all topped with seasoned cracker crumbs crumbled to resemble Poseidon’s pet-rock collection ($20.75).
Four Main Street Bar and Grill
Just off Route 20, a rural highway that crisscrosses the Hidden Hills of the Westfield River watershed, the red-brick façade of a venerable 19th-century storefront shelters Four Main Street Bar and Grill. Inside, an antique-and-craft cabinet showcases work by local artisans and paintball muralists, while the kitchen houses a crew of chefs preparing comforting American fare to serve within the eatery's rustic décor.
Owner and chef John Slattery pens a rotating menu of seasonal American favorites. He serves up steaks and chops, including country-fried new york strip steaks or black-and-tan ribs, as well as seafood, such as roasted salmon and lobster. Craft beers from Wormtown and Berkshire brewery companies join seasonal cocktails and spirits for guests to imbibe while lingering on the sidewalk patio or listening to occasional live music.
