Suggestions for Hartford South/Glastonbury area, please

  • 6

My husband and I will be staying overnight on a Saturday in a Hilton Inn in the Hartford South/Glastonbury area. We'd like to celebrate a childless evening in a tasty (not necessarily fancy) manner. As we are NYers and totally clueless about the area, might you have a suggestion so I can make a reservation? Thanks so much.

  1. Oh, yes. If there is a French restaurant you'd suggest in the Glastonbury/Hartford area, that would be our first choice. Thank you.

      The only French restaurant left in the Hartford area is Cavey's in the center of Manchester, about 15 minutes east of Hartford. It has a split personality: Italian on the main level, French downstairs. Both are excellent.

      Here's a recent review: http://www.hartfordmag.com/html/resta...

    2. If you are at one of the Hilton properties in Glastonbury, you are very close to Max Amore, Max Fish and J. Gilberts.

      1. In Hartford, you would probably enjoy Firebox.

          2 Hopewell in South Glastonbury is very good.

        2. The best restaurants in Glastonbury are, in no particular order, Gilberts (steaks), Max Amore (Italian), Max fish (Seafood), Bricco (Italian), Sakura Garden (Japanese), Plan B (burgers), Hanafin's (Irish Pub) and 2 Hopewell (American). Max Fish, Max Amore and Gilberts are within walking distance of the two hotels in town. Bricco, Sakura, Plan B and Hanafins are a short drive (5 minute). 2 Hopewell is in South Glastonbury which is about 10 oir 15 minute drive but is worth it because of the high quality of food.

          If you really want French, then I would definitely recommend Cavey's in Manchester. That would be about 15 to 20 minutes from Glastonbury. Jay
