b8Officially, the state’s newest burger hot spot opens Thursday in Glastonbury but on Wednesday, residents from that town got their first taste of all-natural burgers, real potato fries and dairy rich milk shakes at Connecticut’s first b.good burger restaurant.

And while pictures are worth 1,000 words:

Located in the former Smith & Hawkins space at Somersetb2 Square, b. good hosted a packed crowd at its unofficial “community’ open house. That was due in no small part to a grill full of really good basic beef, veggie and turkey burgers, fresh vegetables and “Harvey,” the b. good corporate ice cream truck where its signature milk shakes are made.

“We arb3e all about building a community,” said Boston-based company co-owner Jon Olinto who with partner Anthony Ackil and local franchisees Rob Brown and Dennis Pedra welcomed hundreds of guests who took advantage of the free open house.

I rarely have burgers these days but have to admit I liked what I tasted during my stop there. And b4loved the fact that there is already a raised bed full of tomato plants in front of the place, and a display of fresh produce from Botticello Farms inside.

These guys mean business when they say ” food made by people not factories.”
