The Dirty Truth
One can eat only so many meals and hang around so many cafes in 48 hours, but I did my best. A favorite spot, The Dirty Truth, is more bar than restaurant but it’s got a hip vibe, nice wine by the glass, over 40 craft beers, good people watching and better yet, the staff is ever smiling and delightful. Out of a teeny two-person kitchen, The Dirty Truth serves up a revolving menu of odd pickings like chickpea latkes, fried chicken, pozole, burgers and housemade pierogies.
Like everything in Northampton, the food is, of course, locally sourced, organically grown and naturally raised. I had a perfect green salad and a fresh-from-the-oven ginormous, homemade pretzel with mouth-searing mustard. What more could a girl want? Open for dinner and weekend brunch. www.thedirtytruth.com
