Had a nice lunch this afternoon at Elements Bistro, in Elmwood (New Britain Avenue, West Hartford).
Quite nice inside - upscale decor and art, light and airy. The menu was upscale light, with plenty of burgers, sandwiches, and salads, and a pricier selection of entrees. There is a good sized bar area; plenty of good beers on tap. The place reminds me a bit of Plan B (over on Park) but larger. Definitely on a par with the Corner Pug and Tapas in the same neighborhood, at least at first glance.
Zipster had a turkey sandwich with jicama slaw (he liked) and I had the Bistro Salad which was a real treat - perfectly roasted zucchini and asparagus, fresh sliced hams, turkey, and cheese, and slices of fresh cooked bacon, all atop mixed greens. Quite excellant.
Nice to have another dining option in the Elmwood area. They opened up on Wed of last week, and hopefully will survive a new restaurant launch in these troubling economic times.
