Tried Grants tonight for our second adventure into the Hartford Restaurant Week. Three Courses for $20.08.
Starter Choice: Chopped Salad, Olives, Chick Peas,Red Onion, Feta Cheese, and White Balsamic Vinaigrette, OR Butternut Squash Soup, Sage Brown Butter & Spiced Creme Fraiche;
Entrée Choice: Mustard Glazed Atlantic Salmon, with Haricot Verts and French Lentils; OR Braised Short Ribs in Red Wine, Golden Potato Puree, and Roasted Autumn Vegetables;
Dessert Choice: Local Apple Crisp or Pumpkin Cheesecake Brulée.

We all chose the Chopped Salad and it was decent.
There were two other entrées not listed in the promo above: Scallops and a Grilled Yellowfin Tuna, Lyonnaise Potatoes and Tapenade which was chosen by one of our party. It was well liked. The other two of us had the Short Ribs. The portion was very much in the style of a tasting menu [small] but it was very good.
There was a Peanut Butter Chocolate mousse pie offered which I ordered; rich and filling. The Apple Crisp was topped with Vanilla Gelato and the Brulée was Chocolate not Pumpkin much to the delight of that guest.

blognote: Timothy was our waiter and he was excellent. There were many diners taking advantage of the special meal and none of us suffered in service.
