Good food at the Pond House

Very nice dinner last night at the Pond House at Elizabeth Park before the Theater Work's presentation of Finn's 'Make Me a Song'

Brought a bottle of Gatao Vino Verde [corkage fee of $5]

Four of us split two appetizers: Roasted Pepper Salad and a Watermelon Tomato Salad. Both were excellent.

My entree was Tandoori Lamb over a Raisun and Nut Risotto. The lamb was prepared medium-rare [as requested] and was spiced beautifullly. The risotto was a dream come true.

Other entrees were: Asian Salmon Salad over Soba Noodles, Cheeseburger on a Kaiser Roll with Avacado and a side of Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a Vegetarian Noodle Salad.

The desserts looked terrific but we didn't indulge.

I definitely shall return!

blognote: the waitstaff is very proficient, the room is well decorated and the view is Hartford's version of Monet's Giverny.
