Art & Dining Ideas?

chowdear | Mar 10, 2007 02:24 PM

Today, home in New England, I took a stroll via the Internet to view favorite masterpieces in Florence, Rome and Spain. Obviously, pixels are a far cry from up close and in person, and I can't schedule a European trip right now, but I can plan something fun, and, of course, include food. So I'm planning an afternoon to view one particular work of art in New England, followed by a complimentary dinner. I'd like to view Caravaggio's "The Ecstasy of St. Francis" at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. Since I've chosen an Italian artist, the restaurant I've decided on is Carbone's. That was fun, so here's another: Hoppers' Rooms by The Sea at Yale University Art Gallery. Okay, this has me thinking of water and seafood, so the complimentary dinner choice on the way home could be Mill on The River in South Windsor, CT. It's not a seafood restaurant, per se, but the location is lovely and the menu includes seafood. Chowhounders, do you have any "art & dining" ideas?
