Hi, I've worked in hartford for over a year now and am getting pretty bored with the choices I've found--I live near Northampton and I miss the choices for lunch.
So far I've tried Kashmir for Indian (good) and..I often drive to Wild Oats in WH for sushi (not great, but it gets the job done)
I've looked at this board for a while and seen suggestions for El Sarape for Mexican, D&D for Italian sandwiches, and Pho Boston for Vietnamese (all of which I WILL try this week--thanks). Anything else that I should know about? I'd love to know a good sushi place, but other ethnic places would be great too. I'm way tired of getting blah sandwiches for lunch, and if there is something remarkable I'm missing, bring it on.
The hitch: I have to be able to get there in twenty minutes or less, taking traffic into consideration, from Main St. in Hartford. Parking would be good too, but we know how lax the parking enforcement is in hartford....
