It's Taste of Hartford 2013 aka Hartford's Restaurant week. More than 30 restaurants are taking part, most of them offering three course meals for $20.13.

I had the pleasure of going to one of my favorite restaurants for Taste of Hartford, The First & Last Tavern. From pizzas to traditional pasta dishes, this Italian spot does everything right. 

Course one: salad or soup. I had to go for their salad. It's not the usual boring garden salad. This one comes with chickpeas, olives, onions and don't forget to look for the salami and cheese under the lettuce.

Course two: the entree with chicken picatta, oven roasted scrod, summertime primavera or eggplant rollatini. I went for the scrod, a nice buttery portion served with potatoes and spinach with garlic.

Course three: dessert. You can choose from gelato, cannoli or New York cheesecake. I can never pass up cheesecake and LOVED the huge slice they presented me with. It was rich and creamy with just enough strawberries and whipped cream. Be sure to try the cheesecake!

You still have another week to run to the First & Last Tavern for these three-course specials. The Taste of Hartford runs through August 4. , ,
