- Cuisines: Asian, Pan-Asian & Pacific Rim
The cheerful Korean owner of this inn and restaurant swept from his homeland to Japan to Thailand to assemble his menu, and the result is both entertaining and delicious. He now helms a self-named chain of several restaurants in Boston and The Berkshires. Take the culinary journey with him, beginning with a platter of flawless maki and sushi; continue with the exceptional seafood pancake, made with shrimp, crabmeat, squid, and scallions; and finish with Jae's Special country curry. All the fish is fresh. Or make a meal of appetizers, assembled both in the kitchen and at the sushi bar. From the former, consider mandoo (fried meat dumplings) or hamachi kama (grilled yellowtail); from the latter, Naruto (crab stick, flying fish roe, and avocado roll) or tiger eyes (grilled squid stuffed with smoked salmon). More daring diners might try the spicy kimchi stew or the bibimbap, veggies and marinated chicken cooked in a hot stone pot.
The inn features 12 bedrooms, all with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, TV, and DVD players, which cost $95 to $150 per night.
