The iconic New England inn located in the center of Stockbridge (look for it in one of Norman Rockwell’s most famous paintings) has an equally iconic dining room full of crystal chandeliers, white tablecloths, and crisp wait service. The menu is full of New England classics (prime rib with popovers) as well as more creative spins (curried couscous and mushrooms); the kids€™ menu, meanwhile, offers home-cooked alternatives to chicken fingers and French fries with offerings including a mini turkey dinner and a kid’s version of the inn’s famous prime rib. The dress code of jackets and ties has been loosened here recently, but younger kids should still get the pep talk about “best behavior” before arrival.
