Working in content marketing for my company, A Little Bird Told Me, and working (mostly) with restaurants exposes me to, well, all the food. I’m spoiled. I know it. And I consider it my duty to share it with the world. So without further ado, here are two excellent offerings from two of my very favorite clients:
What is Hadley + Occum? It’s the rich, glacier born soil that graces the Farmington River Valley. And it’s the genesis of all that beautiful produce which burst from every farm stand during these glorious hot summer months in the West Hartford/Valley area. And it’s also the name of the new farm dinner series from the DORO Restaurant Group, starting with perennial favorite Treva and the cuisine of Chef John Medonis:
Seen here perusing the kale at Sub Edge Farm, which will host the dinner on July 27th.
Get tickets here and enjoy this first of a series of beautiful nights on the farm with what is guaranteed to be excellent, local driven cuisine.
Also tasty and new: brunch at Little River Restoratives – Hartford’s hippest cocktail bar and soon to be Ramen purveyor via a sister restaurant which will open next door on Capitol Avenue in the fall of 2016. Catch a glimpse of the new menu with what Proprietor Chris Parrot refers to as “Japanese hangover food:” authentic Cabbage pancakes smothered in Japanese mayonnaise, cheese, and your choice of toppings. Plus excellent cocktails with body soothing ingredients such as aloe vera water and Vitamin b12. Plus a DJ. Plus the aforementioned simple, umami saturated and oh so satisfying menu, with Executive Chef Tyler Anderson of Millwrights guest cooking during our visit today. So yeah – basically as cool and cool can be, and very tasty to boot. Below are some pictures of today’s brunchfest with Style Context:
