Dining & Nightlife

The Federal
The Federal’s current owners Michael Presnal and Ralph Santaniello easily integrate the white linen elegance of that bygone era with a fresh and innovative “new American” cuisine that is perfectly prepared and impeccably served. Strong Italian and French influences inspire the contemporary culinary style of chef Presnal in dishes such as his red beet risotto, burnt tangerine glazed cod, and white-chocolate panna cotta. The Federal is dressed up as a special occasion restaurant but is sociable and affordable enough for every occasion. It enjoys a dedicated following of appreciative diners from New York to Boston.
Pho Saigon
Pho Saigon is the Pioneer Valley's premier Vietnamese restaurant. We're a family-owned and operated business, dedicated to sharing our passion for the intricate flavors of Vietnamese cuisine in a warm and approachable setting.
