Other places I’ve visited recently…
The Stockyard Food & Spirits – Located in Brighton, Mass., this local steakhouse/haunt worth visiting for the consistently good food and the decor. Check out Al Capone’s bar and the other unusual collectibles and antiques on display.
The Elbow Room, West Hartford Center – Beautiful weather + rooftop patio + friends + really good wine.
Restaurant Bricco, West Hartford Center. We took up residence in the bar at the front of the restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can see and be seen from the street. Order one of the tasty artisan pizzas.
Tapas, West Hartford – Super fresh Mediterranean food. Get the hummus platter.
The Traveling Vineyard Wine Tasting Party – Like a Tupperware party at a friends house, except with wine. We tasted 7 different wines and then finished off the night with champagne. Yum.
