Restaurant review: Mission Bar + Tapas, Pittsfield

Look for a slim tapas bar tucked between Dottie’s coffeehouse and a modern vintage furnishings store on North Street in Pittsfield, Mass. Musicians dip and dive in a bay window hung with string lights and backlit by streetlamps and a glowing billboard. Slip in and absorb the resonant brass and strings flooding the rustic beams, four-tops and guests pinned to a high rail table. Diners read menus by the scattered candlelight from tin votives. It’s buzzy and moody, and after 8 o’clock on a music night there’s a good chance the jazz, folk or blues will be at full tilt, forcing you to yell to be heard.
