Hopefully, the COVID-19 pandemic is really actually over now, or at least endemic at this point, right? Restaurants were hard hit these last two years and some even closed for good.

Pittsfield, MA was not spared as a lot of the city's eateries might be gone for good, but maybe not! Just because some of the following restaurants are closed doesn't mean they won't come back to life. Maybe as the same or maybe as something else...

WE WANNA KNOW...

WHICH OF THESE 5 PITTSFIELD RESTAURANTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE COME BACK TO LIFE? (POLL AT THE END)

1. TAHITI RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE  (WAHCONAH ST.)

Citing staffing shortages, Tahiti made an announcement via Facebook in May of 2021 that they would close.
