On20. A Food Snob's Heaven!

I watch Top Chef and Iron Chef. Not because I want to learn how to make bacon iced cream (I love bacon, but that’s just wrong). Instead, I like to drool over the beautiful creations and imagine I’m the one eating them. 

Well I finally found a place in Hartford where food is treated like an art form.  On20 is a hidden gem.  It’s a restaurant perched on the 20th floor of 20 State street.  They do lunch on weekdays and dinner on Friday. I go for lunch because it’s cheaper and easier to get a reservation. 

Make sure you go hungry. I usually order an app and a main course.  Then the chef brings out an array of amuse-bouches (free appetizers)! The food is beautiful, unique, adventurous and delicious. No one has to ‘pack their knives and go’.
