Need a Middletown, CT restaurant suggestion (I have criteria!)

Three good places are:
Luce
Tuscany Grille
First and Last Tavern

All easy to get to off of Rte 9. All on or near Main Street. All are Italian restaurants.

Stew Leonard's vs. Fairway

I go to Stew Leonard's in Newington, CT. The meats and other goods are very nice. However, compared to other stores like Stop and Shop, their prices are very high!

Reuben's Deli, West Hartford

We were very disappointed with Reuben's/ We went on a weekday morning The place was practically empty at 10 am and still we had to wait a long time for service, and the waitress was just uninterested in her job. The breakfast was so-so...nothing special about it at all. We will not be going back.

Any Fantastic Meatball Grinders in the Hartford area?

Most places in the Hartford area have mediocre, average, or poor meatball grinders. Years ago Franklin Giant Grinder on Frankl.in Ave had the best, but they changed hands. Any good meatball grinder places left?

Any good donuts in the Hartford, CT area?

We are looking for old-fashioned donuts - not the Dunkin Donut kind. Are there any places that make their own great donuts?

Tastease in Hartford, CT

We went there for the first time today. It is a tiny hole in the wall place, but the mini donuts are so beautiful and decorated and filled with so many things. We bought 2 dozen of the mini-donuts, but you can buy even smaller ones called midi-donuts. It is on New Park Ave in Hartford.

Great Donuts at Tastease Bakery in Hartford, CT

A little hole in the wall bakery is Tastease Bakery on New Park Street in Hartford, CT. It makes great mini-donuts...fabulously decorated minidonuts decorated with everything..lemon, chocolate, peanuts, and very pretty ones. There are about 50 different varieties on different days of the week, or during different seasons. There are minidonuts, and also what they call mididonuts..which are smaller than the minis.
