Night Club

“Located on Front Street in downtown Hartford, Nixs Hartford is spacious, opulent, and lively. Nixs is the place in Hartford to visit for after-work cocktails or to hang out with friends for a fun-filled evening, as they have a great DJ playing most days. Everything revolves around their enormous bar and comfortable lounge booths. The restaurant specializes in small plates of local specialties, which in Hartford means superb fresh oysters, crabs, shrimp, and lobsters. Chef Al Soto knows exactly what to do with these excellent seafood options, and with his skilled touch and a few unexpected ingredients and combinations, he manages to produce delightful surprises. ”

“Firebox takes their farm-to-table philosophy seriously. They work with a large number of local farms and food producers, shaping their menu around what is available seasonally and grown locally. Add to that the expert skills and fruitful imagination of Chef Ed Jones, and the results are delightful small plates bursting with flavors. The restaurant is warm and inviting with exposed brick walls and original beams on the ceiling. Their policy of working with local talent extends to the local artists who have the opportunity to show their art on the restaurant’s walls. Firebox’s brunch has received rave reviews, and you will see why after you try their eggs Benedict. ”
