Restaurant in Amherst or Northampton?

We will be staying in Amherst or Northampton, MA for the night on our way to Montreal, and I'm looking for a ridiculously tasty place to eat dinner! Any advice would be appreciated. (If anyone has a hotel suggestion, I'll take that too.)

Not too far are two of our favorite restaurants: Night Kitchen -- http://montaguenightkitchen... and Restaurante di Paolo -- http://www.ristorantedipaolo.... Both are special places with excellent menus and high standards that make delicious meals. We drive about an hour from the north, but they're much closer to the Amherst/Northampton area.
Both towns have quite a few restaurants where we've enjoyed meals too. They're both sophisticated college towns and in an area with agriculture, you can expect to have good fresh locally grown food.

I recommend the Blue Heron Cafe in Sunderland, which is just north of Amherst. If the weather's nice, try to get a table on the porch!

As for hotels, my parents usually stay at the Autumn Inn when they visit me in Northampton. It's nothing fancy, but clean and reliable.
