Glastonbury's New Deli's

I just had lunch at the Mustard Seed. That is the new sandwich shop (I would not really call it a true deli) that replaced Pickles and Semolina's. It was decent enough. Not quite as pricey as Pickles was which is good. I had one of their specialty sandwiches and it was good. The sandwich came with a side. I chose macarni salad which was plain but tasty enough for me (I don't like over mac salad with lots of stuff in it). The only problem I found was the bread. It is suppose to be on a "knotty roll" but it was really nothing more than a day old not-so-hard roll. The roll was cold (almost refrigerated cold) while the rest of the sandwich was hot. Subway's bread is betterbecause at least it is freshly made.

I have not been to the Green Bean yet. I dorve by and it looked busy which is good. I will try to get there soon though. Has anyone been to either of these two places yet. If so what do you htink? Jay

  1. Thanks for reporting back about mustard seed. I grabbed a menu the other day and am looking foward to checking out soon. I have only been to the Spicy green Bean in Wethersfield but absolutely love it. Everything seems housemade and creative. The daily specials always seem creative. I am so happy to have it here in town now. The soups are wonderful!
