If You Are “Sandy Stuck,” Eats Out Are Possible

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , , Date:

While everyone  is consumed with hunkering down as Connecticut prepares for Sandy (as everyone should be) there are those who will get stuck in hotels  tonight  because of work, etc. or who live downtown in places including Hartford or West Hartford and may lose power.

Right now, a couple of restaurants insist they will do everything possible to be open tonight despite the storm, restaurants that ideally are within walking distance of hotels, condos, apartments etc. and can provide for those in need.

Among them, Salute in downtown Hartford where the  stellar words are “rain or shine” and Barcelona Wine Bar and its Bartaco, both of which, as of this morning, also plan to be open for the day.

“Let’s show Sandy who’s boss,” is the challenge from Barcelona/Bartaco chef Adam Greenberg.

Tyler Anderson said his  Millwright’s  in Simsbury is closed today, Monday,  as usual but promises “we may get creative on Tuesday” depending on when the storm subsides.

Angelico’s Lake House in East Hampton has also brought in heavy duty generators and plan to be open tonight.

All Grants restaurants are closed today but plan to reopen Tuesday.

In anticipation of massive power outages, many restaurants are checking and double-checking generators, already preparing for hungry people in need once the storm subsides Tuesday but call ahead.
