We had a really delicious dinner tonight at Great Falls Harvest, a small family restaurant in Turners Falls. What did we love? Both of our entrees, one was a roasted beef shank with a big pile of broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, bacon and cheese. I had the roasted tofu atop rice with coconut, lots of veggies and slices of seaweed. It was savory, distinctive and better than anything I’ve had at a restaurant for months.
We chatted up our waitress, who turned out to be one of the owners Bridgette Chaffee, and it was fun to be able to talk to the owner and hear her enthusiasm for the food we were being served. We learned from a staff member that both women used to live in central Mass, she in Templeton, and Bridgette in Barre. A couple sitting near us said they were heading up to Deja Bru in Wendell. We gave them directions and talked about where they live, in Petersham.
Great Falls Harvest presents simple, natural and delicious food, it was a joy to find such a great combination of cozy, tasty and reasonable prices at one unpretentious little restaurant in downtown Turners Falls. We capped off our night next door at the Rendezvous, where it always feels like the right place at the right time. Great Falls Harvest, Third St. Turners Falls
