Help with Anniversary dinner in Hartford or Farmington Valley this Friday
Wifey and I have our 5 year anniversary this Friday and would love some suggestions from area hounds.
We live in Farmington so I'm looking for some picks in the valley or Hartford, but can be persuaded to take a trip further out. Just need to get home by 10:00 to bounce the sitter.
Budget is not a problem. Looking for nice anniversary dinner ambiance, can be trendy and/or romantic, just not loud. We're flexible on food type but wifey picks dishes that are not heavy or fried and loves a great salad course and sinful chocolaty dessert. She appreciates gorgeous plate presentations. Local farm-to-table choices is a nice bonus. (Yes, we've been to Firebox - great place.) We don't drink alcohol so wine list isn't a factor.
(Suggestions for gifts also welcome :)
Old Avon Farms is a lovely farm-to-table restaurant with a perfect rustic-romantic ambiance. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable on wine parings, and the history of the farm and its transformation into the restaurant add to the overall enjoyable dining experience.
Was on my list to try for a while. Thought your idea was good, but called and the only available table was in the "small room" overlooking Constitution Plaza. No view of the main room, view of the river, or the jazz entertainment. Thought I'd pass for now, but do you know what this "little room" is like?
Doubt you will get a reservation at 2T at this late date. They are about 4 weeks out, but you might luck out with a cancellation.
I have heard good things at Ferme at the Avon Old Farms Hotel and Metro Bis in Simsbury is always a solid bet, in my book.
