Steak in the Farmington Valley

Without going to Dakota's again for just a so-so steak, where in Farmington Valley can a person get a good steak?

      Also try The Grist Mill. Nice evening views over Farmington River

        A little outside the FV but Flemings in West Hartford and Morton's in Hartford have excellent steaks.

          Going to Mortons next week. Any idea on the fish entrees? Also, what is the attire? Thanks.

            I usually wear a sport jacket with an open collared shirt but, alas, I'm old school and in the minority. Pretty much anything goes there nowadays. The salmon is actually quite good and I often order it at Morton's. I once took someone there for a business dinner and found out when we got there that he didn't eat meat. Bad research on my part but my guest did just fine with the salmon, great shrimp cocktail and one of the vegetable sides. I'm also told that the Chicken Christopher there is quite good but I've never ordered it and can't personally vouch for it.

              thank you so much. I will have either the salmon or the tuna. Will let you know.
