Tips for Dining in Hartford, CT

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Hartford, CT for the marathon in October and would like some dining tips.

1st Meal. We will arrive the day before the marathon and would like to find a neat place to have a sandwich and maybe a beer in downtown or on the way from the airport. Any suggestions?

2nd Meal. We will want somewhere to eat the night before the marathon that has good carb filled food that isn't too heavy. Normally a light pasta or a baked potato with a nice salmon is my favorite pre-race meal before a run. However, since we won't be staying out late nor drinking, we typically like to stay in a price range of less than 20 per entree.

3rd Meal. Following a marathon for lunch I always crave a nice salad and my husband will want something more substantial like a burger. Any tips on a good burger joint downtown that also has some decent salads.

4th Meal. This is when we celebrate! Someplace that has great food and a good wine menu but we would like to stay around $20-30 per entree.

We would like to find places to eat that are walking distance from our hotel, Crowne Plaza. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I normally get ideas from tripadvisor but there are so many options for Hartford that I am having problems deciding where to eat.
