On20 Taste of Hartford Summer 2015

Lunch today at my old favorite at On20. It was Taste of Hartford Summer 2015. Somehow, even though the menu prices are excellent, I feel that I would rather just eat off the regular menu. This year's 2015 menu [$30.15 at On20] was intriguing. There were two of us sharing each course so it looks like a lot of food but the quantity was just right.

We started with Chowder: creamy fennel, pancetta crumble and dill oil then Agnolotti: eggplant caponata, roasted red pepper fondue and pickled garlic crumbs. The chowder was the winner but the agnoletti sauce was super.



Main courses were Tagliatelle pasta: crispy pork belly, pickled onions, English peas and pecorino romano then Grilled Ribeye: smothered summer squash and charred shallots with a side of Glazed Carrots with charred ginger and dry sherry glaze [$$]. The rib eye was the winner but rest of plate not so memorable, the crispy pork belly seemed to overpower the pasta. The carrots were superb.

For dessert there was Blueberry Crumb Cake with Thyme Ice Cream and Caramel Peach on a pink peppercorn sable and lemon verbena. Thyme ice cream over the 'sand' was the best of all ingredients in both plates.

blognote: There has always been a charge for parking but this time 'covered by waiter'.
bloginfo: Gratuity is added but we didn't receive the meal breakdown until we asked for clarification of the 'added gratuity' on the charge slip.
