On nights when there is a show at the Mahaiwe next door, Castle Street Cafe, a hidden gem in the Berkshires featuring the freshest locally grown ingredients, is reminiscent of Joe Allen, the venerable Broadway saloon. After 20 years, it still pulses with energy, and the staff knows enough to ask whether you are heading next door after dinner to make sure you order dishes that the kitchen can fire up promptly. But even on nights when the theater is dark, Castle Street has a bar crowd that makes the restaurant buzz and there is live jazz on most Friday and Saturday nights.
