Early dinner-Hartford area tomorrow

We will be attending the RV show at the Convention center tomorrow afternoon and want to try somewhere new for an early dinner after.
I looked at all the restaurant week menus for places we haven't been, and none are thrilling us and to be honest, nothing in Harford thrills me much anymore.

We will drive 20 minutes or so in any direction from Hartford and want someplace on the casual side.

What have you got for me?

  1. How 'bout hyper-casual and different? Cevapi at NY-NY on Franklin Ave.

    Bonus round--go up the street to Mozzicato's for dessert and espresso (and a shot if you like!). Not diggin' cevapi? Who can beat a giant grinder at Maple Giant or Franklin Ave. Giant...and if this is all too casual...

    The tavern menu at 2 Hopewell in Glastonbury would work (you can eat from the dinner menu in the tavern, too--nice setting, very good food):

    Or across the street from there is Thai Angel--also casual and tasty, too.

    1. I've got a few recs for you. East West Grill on New Park Avenue on (or near) the Hartford/W. Hartford line is a Lao-Thai place that also serves other good Asian food. I've never had a bad meal there...everything is great (and I'm not hugely into Thai food specifically).
      I also really love the Corner Pug on New Britain Avenue in W. Hartford. Great beers on tap, good solid pub like (and more) food, friendly waitstaff and there's almost always a table open.
