My life has hurdles have been causing me to do lots of things alone. I decided to travel to Connecticut for a staycation. I found a restaurant first and planned my trip around that, cause hey…it’s about the food. A quick Google search gave me a few restaurants. This one stood out the most to me. I went on a Sunday after work, the drive was short and sweet. I called to see if I needed a reservation, she said it wasn’t necessary. I got there a few minutes after 8. The place is actually in the bottom of a boutique hotel. The bar had a quite a few people but the restaurant was pretty empty, I was seated right away. As I walked to my seat I admired the decor. It was designed beautifully. I immediately ordered a margarita, my signature drink. After perusing the menu I decided on pasta with fresh marinara and broccoli and onion rings as my appetizer. The bread basket had breadsticks and bread, served with olive oil. I liked the variety in the basket. The onion rings were thick, light and crispy. The pasta was amazing. Cooked perfectly, fresh black pepper and parmesan cheese on the side. The bowl was layered, broccoli, pasta and sauce. I managed to save room for dessert. My choice was called the Chocolate bar. It was superb. A shortbread cookie with caramel and chocolate. It reminded of a homemade Twix. I would absolutely go again, totally worth the drive.
