It wouldn't be summer without the Taste of Hartford. For two weeks, meals are discounted at participating restaurants throughout the city. This year, like every year, I ran to the First & Last Tavern. I went for lunch, but they were kind enough to offer me the Taste of Hartford menu that's normally reserved for dinner only.

Every meal at First & Last starts with an overflowing basket of their homemade breads. The focaccia is THE BEST! If you visit on the weekend, you'll be lucky enough to get some of their soft and sweet raisin bread. Like I always say, don't fill up on bread. There are 3 courses on the way!

I started off feast with their tossed salad. It's not your average boring side salad with just greens and tomatoes. This one comes with chickpeas, cheese and salami. Wicked good. For dinner, I choose the scrod with potatoes and spinach. The scrod was cooked to perfection, sitting in melted butter. The spinach was tossed with cloves of garlic for some added Italian flavor.

For dessert, I enjoyed their New York style cheesecake. I can't even begin to tell you how delicious this cheesecake is. It's chilled and almost has the consistency of ice cream.    , , ,
