Hi,

I need suggestion for a family meal after a visit to a sick relative at the Hartford Hospital this Sunday. Might be late lunch or dinner. It will be a mini re-union, and could be 7-15 people, so we would want a place that would be good for sitting and chatting for a while (not trying to rush us out to turn the table).

Mid priced or so would be good, but not fancy or ostentatious. Should be mainstream food.

Thanks for any suggestions...

A Regular Joe

    Not sure if this restaurant is open Sundays but you could check its website. Firebox is very nice....decent food, very nice ambiance.

      Thanks for the suggestion. open 4:30 to 8;30 on Sunday.

      I'd love to try it, but it looks at bit too upscale (atmosphere and price) for what I have in mind....

        J Restaurant is pretty good and would be super convenient...right across from the hospital. You can check out their menu and such on their website...http://www.jrestaurantbar.com/

          I'd head a mile or two down the road to First and Last. Good food, decent prices, and they should be able to fit a group that size, although you'd probably want to call ahead.
