Grant’s, West Hartford

Christine and I had dinner here on Friday night, taking advantage of their happy hour deals. The bar area was hopping, but we were able to snag a table at the edge of the room.

We shared a cheeseburger ($6), truffle fries ($4), wild mushroom risotto fritters ($5) and a duck and goat cheese quesadilla ($11). The cocktails were all $6 and even through I was embarrassed to order a drink called a “flirtini,” it was pink and delicious (absolut raspberry, prosecco, fresh lime, cranberry & pineapple juice).

I thought all the food was great. The cheeseburger was a perfect medium rare; it had a tender and flavorful patty. The fritters were crispy and delicious, although I don’t know why they don’t just call it an arancini? The fries were thin, crispy and generously topped with a mountain of parmesan.

(Sorry, the picture is fuzzy)

The service was less than attentive, but that is to be expected during happy hour. The affordable prices make it worth the lack in service. I wish Boston had happy hour deals like this.
