Ancho rubbed slices of tender steak accompanied fresh diced tomatoes topped with julienned radishes and a flavorful guacamole served inside an exotic leaf in the Hangar Steak Tacos ($11).
In the Roasted Pumpkin Agnolotti ($10) the pumpkin is complimented by the spicy crunch of the walnuts and the sweet, tender bosc pear. Finished in a warm brown butter sauce, the Angolotti proves a delicate and delicious appetizer plate.
Next up, a divine Sweet Potato Gnocchi ($12) dish made with duck confit and a savory red wine sauce. The pillows of sweet potato gnocchi proved an exciting pairing with the tender duck meat and sharp parmesan cheese.You can never go wrong when a salad includes house made cheese. The House-Made Burrata Cheese & Prosciutto di Parma Salad ($13) was a winning combination of ingredients. Buratta means buttered in Italian, the cheese is made with fresh mozzarella and cream, lending a soft silky palate and a rich sweet buttery taste. Tart juicy grapefruits, peppery arugula and crispy prosciutto mingled with an inventive dressing that combined a reduction of white wine balsamic with figs. Wishing Alicia well as she officially embraces new life in Connecticut, another round of cocktails were in order! I'm looking forward to sharing in her discoveries as she scopes out the Hartford and local CT food scene!!
