Iberico ham in CT? (spec. Hartford?)

i'm guessing whole foods is probably a no on this, but there must be someplace in the state. any help would be appreciated, especially if it points to somewhere near hartford.

to clarify, i'd like to purchase for home, not looking for restaurant rec's

        seems like it it would be cheaper and way more fun to just go to spain and do it up right.we went last spring and its amazing,the wine,sherrys,the jamon,etc.,the people are super friendly too,just go.............

            I've had it twice at Costa Del Sol and it is amazing. Talk to Pepe the owner. He does have a little retail shop there at the restaurant and I'm sure he'd work something out with you.

      Call Darien Cheese and ask if they have any. Or Fromage in Old Saybrook. They would be the only two places that I know of that would be able to recoup after such an investment. The wholesale price alone is around $80/lb. I know that Ibiza in New haven is slicing it up. Terrific stuff.
