Lattitude Restaurant, West Springfield, MA: this is by far my favorite restaurant in Western Massachusetts. The food is amazingly delicious, trendy, and just upscale enough to make for a perfect date night without any trace of pretentiousness. I had an exquisite lamb dish which was cooked perfectly medium rare, a smoked pork chop which passed this Texas girls high smoked meat standards, and a white chocolate poached pear dessert that rocked this savory gals world. I’ve never ordered anything that didn’t impress me and the wait staff are the most friendly people in the area, which is a bigger compliment than you may realize. Oh and the martinis are fabulous!
