Went for a Hartford Restaurant Week adventure and found a restaurant that needs more than one stop to fully enjoy a terrific menu. This is a place you want to call home! The Tavern at Keney Park is set within the beautifully kept Keney Park Golf Course. Never having played golf [I caddied and that ended that pastime] this was only my second visit to the park. Last year I performed there as the Great Blue Heron in Night Fall.
Started with the Bayou Catfish Bites with Bayou ketchup and my dining partner had the Fried Green Tomatoes with a Romesco dipping sauce. I like mine better than hers and visa versa. Her choice for entrée was the Carolina Hickory Smoked BBQ Brisket with Jalapeño-Bacon Cornbread and Corn on the Cob. She is a real judge of brisket and rated this one of the best ever. My 'tiny' taste agreed with her. My half a bird of Sweet Tea Fried Chicken was luscious. This included corn on the cob and a buttermilk biscuit. Some of that chicken came home with me and I am anxiously awaiting tonight's leftovers.
blognote: We sat outside under the tent with great service. ALSO they are one of the few to offer the deal for $20.17 to reflect the present year. So many of the other restaurants got lost in their calendars and skipped to $30.17.
