History Museum
“Built in 1796, the original seat of the state legislature is now a historical landmark & museum. The old pillory stocks seem a little surreal, make you feel like you're actually travelling back in time. Kids exhibits are wonderful, especially in the activities room, downstairs gallery, CT Kid Governor's office, and museum of oddities. Kids and adults will enjoy a visit here.”

“Vegetarians, beware: Bear’s Smokehouse is an unapologetic carnivores’ heaven. The meat is delicately smoked in hickory and other fragrant woods, rubbed to perfection, and barbecued until it is charred on the outside and pink on the inside and falls off the bone. Chef Jamie “The Bear” McDonald has perfected his own sauces and rubs, and he chooses everything from the wood to the meat cuts very carefully. You can find all kinds of meat on the menu, from briskets, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and sausages, along with a whole range of sides. The ambiance fits the feast – the restaurant is located in a converted garage and has a counter service and a sink.”

“Firebox takes their farm-to-table philosophy seriously. They work with a large number of local farms and food producers, shaping their menu around what is available seasonally and grown locally. Add to that the expert skills and fruitful imagination of Chef Ed Jones, and the results are delightful small plates bursting with flavors. The restaurant is warm and inviting with exposed brick walls and original beams on the ceiling. Their policy of working with local talent extends to the local artists who have the opportunity to show their art on the restaurant’s walls. Firebox’s brunch has received rave reviews, and you will see why after you try their eggs Benedict. ”

“Located on Front Street in downtown Hartford, Nixs Hartford is spacious, opulent, and lively. Nixs is the place in Hartford to visit for after-work cocktails or to hang out with friends for a fun-filled evening, as they have a great DJ playing most days. Everything revolves around their enormous bar and comfortable lounge booths. The restaurant specializes in small plates of local specialties, which in Hartford means superb fresh oysters, crabs, shrimp, and lobsters. Chef Al Soto knows exactly what to do with these excellent seafood options, and with his skilled touch and a few unexpected ingredients and combinations, he manages to produce delightful surprises. ”

“Mortensen Riverfront Plaza is a popular park in downtown Hartford and a centerpiece of the Riverfront park system. A large stage near the river hosts a range of performances, and grass-covered terraces offer seating for more than 2,500 people. The plaza stairs are a great space for vigorous exercise or for relaxing and watching the boats on the river. They also serve as front-row seats during the annual dragon boat festival. From the Plaza, you can take one of the many walking trails along the river, get on a boat tour of the city, or walk across the Founders Bridge to East Hartford. ”

“On20 is an elegant, upscale restaurant that provides you with a spectacular view of the river below the 20th floor of One State Street. Perfect for serious business lunches or romantic candle-lit dinners, the restaurant features subtle décor that enhaces the spectacular food their young French-trained Executive Chef Jeffery Lizotte creates using locally sourced ingredients he gets daily from his network of farmers and food producers. The menu is innovative and colorful and at times brave – his chowder comes with creamy fennel, panchetta crumble, orange, and dill oil. In Connecticut, it takes youth to shake the traditions to this extent. Lunch Prix Fixe is an affordable option for business. ”
