Cuvee - West Hartford

Last Tuesday, my friend and I decided to try "Cuvee" before going to see "Julie and Julia". (Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci - sublime)

We loved Cuvee, it's very cozy with a South Beach feel. The menu consists of small plates and a thoughtful wine and cocktail list. The restaurant is divided into two distinct areas: a "wine bar"and "champagne room". Given the current economic climate, it was reassuring to see that the restaurant was busy. After ordering an expresso martini and a champagne cocktail; we decided to share a goat cheese and onion tart, ham and cheese crepes, and spicy beef lettuce cups. The beef cups were terrific, sweet on the first bite followed by a flavorful spicy kick! There were several interesting sushi rolls on the menu, which I would love to try on my NEXT visit. All and all, it was a perfect way to spend a Tuesday evening and a fun place to meet girlfriends for drinks and chat.

Check it out:

Time to get the little one to bed, we spent a lovely afternoon enjoying the beautiful weather with friends who just happen to love cooking. Perfect.
