Greetings! I'll be traveling to Boston tomorrow along I-91 and then I-84, and passing through Hartford right at lunchtime.
What would be the one place to go on this route that is within 5 minutes of the highway, and within about 30 minutes of Hartford on either side? I have been there literally once in my life, and we just ate at a sports bar near the Civic Center.
I'm open to any kind of food high or low... ideally I would love to try a local specialty, the equivalent of New Haven pizza or Baltimore crab cake or Cincinnati chili. That said, absent a recommendation we will try Max Downtown.
p.s. I need to hear from you by 11 p.m. tonight. I know, I know...
