I have eaten at Bizet for many years- in fact if we are going to be anywhere near Great Barrington, we make sure to reserve a table. We have tried many dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed. Great fresh sushi every time!...More

While walking around Great Barrington, we stopped here for lunch on a Tuesday. I am always adventurous and Bizen proved to be a nice choice. They have an extensive menu but for lunch we wanted to go light, so bento box it was.
