Grocery or Supermarket
“9 MINUTES Great selections including a salad bar. Google Review: This is an awesome market. We typically stop here when we are traveling from RI to NY. The bathrooms are typically clean which is a core metric for my reviews. The fresh market typically has a nice selection of healthy to not so healthy food that is easy to take on the road. As far as shelf goods it’s a typical market. Good selection and never a long wait to get checked out. Highly recommend stopping here for a quick break and refresher!”

“9 MINUTES Rated "VERY GOOD" by the New York Times fine dining section critic Rand Richards Cooper. Travel Advisor: Sat nite - reservations suggested Pleased from start to finish! The service is lovely at The Barn. The entire staff is well-trained to serve you graciously. My husband ordered the hangar steak cooked to perfection. I had the lamb and it was a huge portion with lovely glazed carrots. I substituted the couscous for sautéed brussel sprouts, great decision for they were delicious. They also bring a lovely napkin pocket of bread with a dip - nice presentation for everything. We have enjoyed every meal here — high quality and lovely ambiance.”

“9 MINUTES Yelp Review: Count me as one that was skeptical. Good Mexican food in Granby? But we came here recently, and my dining companion declared it better than Puerto Vallarta (a pretty good mini-chain). Strong words. There's a lot to like about this place. Good service, nice atmosphere, family-friendly, yet still enough for adults to indulge. A big and varied menu. I really enjoyed the Rancho burrito. Filled with good ground beef, it was really tasty, particularly with the guacamole in ample supply. One dining companion had a shrimp dish -- another big hit. While another got a chicken dish that was almost a like a Chicken Marsala with mushrooms. It was delicious. ”

“8 Minutes ~ Open Table Review - From the moment we entered LaFigata, we were impressed by the décor, warm welcome and overall vibe of the bustling restaurant and welcoming aroma. We were seated almost immediately and our waitress (Natalie) was immediately attentive and knowledgeable. We had the meatball appetizer (will definitely have that again!), a white pizza and the Bolognese - all were excellent! We finished with carrot cake for dessert with a dessert coffee. This will be a regular dinner spot for us for sure! Well done!!”

“12 MINUTES Yelp: Ladies and gents, I give you the best Ramen in the state of CT. A title recently held by another (in my mind at least) the crown has now passed to Tiger Belly Located in a little unassuming strip mall in the middle of nowhere Tiger Belly serves "The Darkness" their name for a bowl of Ramen that has so much depth and so much flavor that you don't mind driving to nowhere to get it. I shall return a few hundred times!”

“9 MINUTES Upscale Asian cuisine Small bar area. Yelp: As a former Southern California food critic, I have to say my New England choices for Asian cuisine have been plentiful but mostly disappointing--when we happened into Han Asian cuisine in Granby. This eatery was far and away the best Asian food we have had in six years in Connecticut. Owner James Chen is intimately involved in everything about his patrons' dining experience. James stopped by our table twice to make sure all was well and to approve our up-charge for pineapple rice, with our two Chinese dishes which were usually served with plain rice.I am totally confident in giving an unqualified recommendation to Han Asian Cuisine!”

“8 Minutes A lifesaver for quality organic foods in the area. They have a wide selection of health foods and Eco friendly products, as well as a juice/smoothie bar in the back. SOME prices seemed to be marked up higher than elsewhere where I have seen the same products (in both NYC and Los Angeles), which I could assume is because of the convenience factor. Elite tip: they have green smoothies, and can do custom ones! I wish their was a bit more of a selection of green smoothies on their menu board. They open at 9am”

“8 MINUTES Fine country bakery just minutes away. Famous Granby orchard with cafe, hot apple cider in season, pick your own apples. In 2012, due to growing demand, the building was expanded, including the porch, which now wraps around the end towards the orchard. Lunch is served on the porch from May through October, featuring soups, salads, panini, quiche, decadent desserts and more. Whenever possible, it is a true farm to table experience - with fresh herbs and veggies from the garden and fruits from the orchard making their way on to lunch plates within hours - or sometimes minutes - of harvest.”

“10 MINUTES Local favorite with great craft beer. Yelp: I've visited this place 3 or 4 times in the last year or two and have been impressed each time. There's a nice deck in back for outdoor dining or beer drinking, and the inside has a lively bar with high-top tables and a quieter side dining room. Service is reliably pleasant and professional, and the pub food (nachos, sandwiches, pizza) is great. They also take pride in preparing some creative dinner meals, which are excellent (last night we had the special: portabella "steaks". with mashed root vegetables (delicious), as well as a grilled romaine salad (nice, but a bit under-grilled for my taste). ”
