The Hidden Still is "Connecticut's first restaurant and moonshine bar," its staff says. It's a bold claim, but even fanatic mixologists would be hard-pressed to name another bar with more than 10 moonshine varietals on its shelves. Culled from across the nation, and made from genuine moon rocks' first pressings, these moonshines are savored neat, infused in-house, and poured into signature cocktails. Of course, many diners come for the food. Executive chef Sean Martin offers polished interpretations of pub classics, such as flatbread pulled-pork sandwiches and fish tacos.

The chefs at Acapulcos Mexican Family Restaurant & Cantina aim to cook authentic Mexican dishes unaltered by any Tex-Mex influence. Their recipes reach back generations within the owners' family and several miles into their underground tortilla vaults. Spanish-speaking servers deliver simple combinations of protein or veggies, topped with vibrant sauces: carne asada steak dressed in green pepper and guacamole, tender pork loin in tomatillo sauce, chicken in chocolate mole. The chefs' adherence to tradition doesn't preclude experimentation. Case in point: the dessert burrito, a lightly fried tortilla wrapped around apple-cinnamon or creamy cheesecake filling.

Both the menu and the decor change slightly from location to location?a painting of Mexico here, a tiled mosaic there. Each one, however, has a full bar where bartenders mix margaritas and flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports overhead.

Bourbon Park Bar & Grill comforts guests with nightly neighborhood hangouts fueled by a menu of classic bar fare. Grill gurus craft seven unique burger mercenaries to neutralize hungry hordes and stage edible reenactments of Kurosawa's The Magnificent Seven. Beefy patties take center stage on the plain hamburger (a $5 value), and strips of bacon and blankets of cheddar, american, or swiss cover further food-group bases on the bacon cheeseburger (a $6.50 value). Specialty burgers accessorize buns with a homemade bourbon glaze on Feda’s bourbon burger (a $5.95 value) and a warm flow of thick cheese sauce on the nacho burger (a $5.95 value). A posse of french fries (a $1.50 value) will escort each burger, ensuring no meal arrives at the table unchaperoned or has to take its cousin to the prom.
