Connecticut Restaurant Week, sponsored by the Connecticut Restaurant Association, runs Oct. 12 to 18 with special menus and deals at eateries throughout the state. Participating CRA member restaurants will offer promotions for $20.15 or $30.15, including prix-fixe meals, two-for-one options or specially priced wines.
Menus are still being posted, but early entries include a fall-inspired $20.15 three-course menu at Newington's Rooster Company, with entree choices of apple bourbon-brined pork chop, half-roasted chicken with polenta and sweet potato and miso-glazed swordfish with spaghetti squash and brussels sprouts. Millwright's in Simsbury also offers a $20.15 prix-fixe in its tavern, with choice of burger, fish tacos or dumplings for a main dish and a zucchini cake with caramel popcorn and blueberry creme fraiche ice cream or hazelnut florentine "cannoli" for dessert.
