i had the very rare opportunity to head to happy hour earlier this week with a few girls from work. normally, my schedule doesn’t work with happy hour, but thankfully, this monday was an exception! we opted for grants in west hartford center. while i’m a huge fan of billy grant’s bricco (west hartford) & bricco trattoria (glastonbury), i had never been to grants! when erin suggested it, i drooled over the happy hour menu and kept my fingers crossed for nice weather so we could sit outside.
well, i got my wish, since monday was gorgeous (albeit hot!). we grabbed a shaded table outside (so i’ve still never sat inside grants…) and shared an order of truffle fries. i also ordered a caprese salad and drank glasses upon glasses of… water. i’m so exciting, i know.
a couple of the girls tried some of their drinks, which sounded so interesting and fruity! i think there were grapefruit gimlets, fizzy strawberry drinks and prickly pear margaritas ordered over the course of the afternoon.
i had to jet quickly after we polished off the truffle fries, since it was a cookout waiting for me at home for me that evening. looking at some of the other items on the menu, i can’t wait to go back and try a full meal there. as we know from my last visit to bricco trattoria, billy grant’s restaurants never disappoint!
