Today was the last day of the Taste of Hartford 2011. There were 30 participating restaurants throughout the City of Hartford, each offering their own special three course menu for only $23 per person! Whatever your “taste” – Italian, Mexican, Asian, Continental, Portuguese, Cajun, Japanese, Spanish, or Seafood – there was something for everyone!
On this rainy Sunday evening, my husband, Joe, and I decided to try Salute. Located diagonally across from Bushnell Park, an appetizing surprise awaits you. From the moment you enter Salute, hospitality greets you. The staff is warm and friendly. The service is excellent! You cannot tell the owners from the wait staff! The high coffered ceilings and granite tiled wainscoting frame a fine dining experience.
What to order? For me, a Field Green Salad to start, Rose Pasta for the entrée and for dessert, a Tiramisu that rivaled my best Tiramisu! Joe ventured beyond his comfort zone this evening and had the Strawberry Salad, Shrimp Fra Diablo and Banana Bread Pudding! Everything was fantastic! Thank you Lisa for the great service. We will return to Salute again in the near future! Grazie and Buon Appetito!
