Firebox Restaurant

After a rousing Creative Cocktail Hour at RAW, we headed off to Firebox to find a little something to eat. Well that ended up well!

Started with a dozen #3 Nantucket Oysters [$36] which were superb. I always forget how much I love oysters until something like this happens. Then we split a Kale Salad [$12] olive, bread crumb, red onion, feta vinaigrette, parmesan. Shall I go on? Then a small plate order of Grilled Asparagus [$12] covered with crumbled duck confit and a poached duck egg. Also [yes, the beat goes on] there was another small plate order of Roasted Brussel Sprouts [$8] with apple, bacon, malt vinegar, garlic aioli. And for dessert a Butternut Squash Bread Pudding [$9] pear-ginger compote, chocolate, espresso whipped cream, pistachio.

Two glasses of Sancerre [$13 per] and a coffee ended a wonderful meal that had us there until closing. I love Hartford!
