Wants beef stew...Hartford metro area

So suppose you approach dinnertime and suddenly you feel that a fine beef stew is just what you want (yeah, even in August). What restaurant would you head for in the Hartford metro area? Diner? Ethnic? Thanks for your thoughts.

    I never tried it there, but they serve lamb stew at Vaughans Irish Pub in Hartford.

      Mayor Mike's has a decent beef stew, accompanied by an equally decent beer list.

        I would walk over to The Half Door and grab a bowl of "Irish stew," which like Vaughan's, is made with lamb. I have fantasies about that stuff.
