  1. It's only a little over an hour between W & H.... is this a highway trip or a meandering along back roads?...

      backroads - or anywhere near the highway

    2. well, there's always Rein's Deli in Vernon Ct, just off route 84. genuine New York style deli, and very good. Perhaps closer to Hartford than you would like, I don't know.

      1. Rein's - authentic NY Jewish Deli - always get take out on our way home to FFC.
        First & Last Taverne - Hartford -- just reviewed in the boards - great pizza...quick, friendly service - brilliant pizza & salads.

          Same exit off of Rt 84 in Vernon is the Vernon Dinner, just a short way past the entrance to Rein's Deli. Food is good dinner food, nothing spectacular. That's about it. There is nothing between the Mass/Ct. border until Vernon except for a Mac's and Burger King located just off the highway at the first Vernon Exit.
