On a quiet street in Lenox, Massachusetts, we visited a gray clapboard building with white trim and bright blue sign reading “bistro zinc.” The restaurant had received high praise from dinner guest Rob, who had dined there several times.
I thought I was having an early dinner at O’Leary’s in Scotia when I clumped up the three stairs to the front door of the restaurant.
Surprise! O’Leary’s had morphed into Mohawk Taproom & Grill while I wasn’t looking.
Spindles is in a small storefront on a street struggling to attract and keep merchants. Judging by the crowd in the restaurant that night, I’d say they’re doing well. Perhaps it will encourage other businesses to move onto the block.
If you’ve driven north up Route 9 from Saratoga Springs, you’ve seen this place. A larger-than-life-sized statue of a rearing black stallion looms outside the one-story white building. In the summer, you can play bocce behind the restaurant.
