Swathed in muted earth tones, the interior of Common House Kitchen & Bar is chic but low-key. That's good, because it keeps the focus on the food: an all-day menu of classy and contemporary American cuisine. Signature items include crab cakes spiked with lump crabmeat over a red pepper aioli, and colorful beet sliders served with goat cheese and tender greens. Located inside the Sheraton Hartford South Hotel, Common House is also open for breakfast. Then, chefs plate up classics such as eggs benedict or new dishes with a creative twist—such as corn-flake encrusted French toast with bananas and strawberries.
Daniel Carmody's Restaurant & Public House treats patrons to ice-cold beers paired with a spread of hearty plates home-made with fresh ingredients, from beer-battered fish and chips to rib eye steaks and spicy chicken wings. As they laugh with friends and sip frosty brews, guests watch sports on an arsenal of 25 televisions, or dance and sing along to live music each Friday and Saturday night.
The stained-glass sign on the entrance to Billie's 1890 Saloon says "est. 1981," but the atmosphere of the cozy neighborhood pub is set squarely in the late 19th century. Worn brick walls and dark varnished wood surround guests as they sip frosty pints of beer and dine on corned-beef sandwiches and chicken wings.
Legacy Bar & Grill makes it easy to have a good time. With a casual, friendly atmosphere complemented by a rustic, all-wood interior, the establishment greets gaggles and individuals alike with warmth and fun. On the menu, classic pub food like wings, burgers, and steak sandwiches rub elbows with approachable plates of fusion and multicultural cuisine, such as edamame dumplings, pulled pork tacos, and knishes. Eight TVs playing live sports from basketball to football circle the bar, where Guinness and Bud slosh into steins while bartenders shake Baileys-infused cocktails. But for many, the Legacy reputation hinges on its noncomestible offerings: in addition to live music or DJ sets with no cover charge every single weekend, a roster of events offers things like country line dancing and karaoke.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Momo’s Sports Bar & Grill maintains the feel of a cozy neighborhood hangout even as customers flock to its plentiful TV screens like moths to a TV screen.
