Our Story

Paul & Elizabeth’s Restaurant opened its doors in Thornes Marketplace, Northampton Massachusetts, in the fall of 1978. Rooted in macrobiotic cooking and Japanese training, the family-run establishment delivers a menu, while it has developed over time, remains true to its founding ideals.

Owners Paul & Elizabeth strive to bring the best of what the region has to offer to their dishes. Along with their son Nate, head chef and general manager, they have built an award winning team. Together they create meals made from the freshest ingredients and prepare them in a way that honors the food as well as the diners they serve.

The dining room boosts high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and plantings throughout. The effect is a warm and inviting space, comfortable for large parties, and intimate gatherings all at once. Within this space, the Sustick family caters to the needs of all diners, with their time tested menu and daily specials. From lunch in a sunny window, to a candlelit dinner, to a lively Sunday brunch, Paul & Elizabeth’s is here to serve year after year.
