Oh hello there Southern New England folks....Just moved to the Hartford area and am clueless as to local cuisine. Rather than trying to scour the boards for each of my questions - I thought I'd create a broad topic that might be a good guide to the current scene. Admittedly, I haven't explored much so my knowledge is pretty limited. I have been to a couple of the Max Restaurant Group places (Max Downtown and Trumbull Kitchen) and haven't been all that impressed. Other than that though...I'm a clean slate. I'd rather not limit the discussion to Hartford proper - more Hartford area.

Without further ado...I am looking for the best...

Thai (real deal if possible!)
Japanese (sushi, ramen)
Chinese (got a rec for Shu on another post)
Vietnamese (best pho!)
Korean (BBQ or otherwise)
Other Asian Cuisines

Italian (pizza will be separate category)

Middle Eastern cuisine (Tangiers?)

Modern American

Beer (bar)
Beer (shop)
Liquor (shop)

Last but not least - Your vote for best overall restaurant in the area.

If this has been done before or is too much - feel free to torpedo!

Excited to explore and hope you can help a poor guy out.

Trumbull Kitchen,
Shu Restaurant,
Tangiers International LLC
