A Flavorful Adventure at Cilantro Fresh Mexican Grill: A Must-Try Mexican Restaurant in New Haven | Cilantro Fresh Mexican Grill
Jason Allen Card, 01/29/2023

Cilantro Fresh Mexican Grill is a feast for the senses! Every bite is a celebration of fresh and authentic Mexican flavors, made with only the finest ingredients. The secret to their delectable dishes is the handcrafted, made-fresh-daily guacamole, dressing, salsa, and marinades. The two-taco combo plate served with garlic rice and choice of beans is a steal at just $11.45, and the spicy cold salsa is a flavor explosion that will leave you wanting more. The restaurant offers a variety of Mexican and local beers, and the customer service is impeccable. Despite its fast-food appearance, the restaurant is anything but ordinary. It has a lovely ambiance, clean and well-maintained bathrooms, and a hip vibe that's perfect for a casual dining experience. Don't miss out on this hidden gem in New Haven - Cilantro Fresh Mexican Grill is a true gem in every sense of the word.

Terrible in all aspects! | Smash Pad
Michael , 05/26/2024

Where do I start. I ordered a patty melt just the sandwich and it took 35 minutes to come out. When I asked for my money back because that wait time is ridiculous for any type of food establishment and I was fed up, all the employees were rude and refused to give me my money back. Now onto the food. Plain and simple, awful. The beef was completely unseasoned and flavorless. The bread was soggy and the cheese tasted weird. Overall terrible experience and will never be paying for that crap again. I’m sorry for whoever else had to try this trash.

SO GOOD! Sweet potato tacos are on point! | Cilantro Fresh Mexican Grill
Becky B., 01/29/2023

Cilantro's sweet potato tacos are exceptional! The mix of flavors and textures is fantastic and the sweet potato is cooked to perfection. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere lively. I highly recommend trying the sweet potato tacos. Five stars for sure!

A Culinary Ascent to the Peak of Pleasure at Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse | Fire On The Mountain Smokehouse
Jason Card, 05/20/2023

From the very moment you step foot into Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse, you're enveloped by a tantalizing symphony of sizzling sounds, invigorating smoky aromas, and a warm, cozy ambiance that instantly puts you at ease. Nestled in the heart of Suffield Commons, this gastronomic gem serves breakfast with a delicious twist, all day long, amplified by the profound magic of smoked meats. Access to this culinary haven is a breeze, with ample parking at the back and five ultra-convenient To-Go parking spots right at the entrance. The outdoor patio exudes a relaxed, rustic charm, complete with a cozy fireplace in the dining room that beckons you to unwind in its comforting glow. I was delighted with a trio of dishes that are nothing short of breakfast reinvented: Smoked Meats and Breakfast Treats, Country Benedict, and Mountain Hash. And let's not forget an indulgent sweet treat that elevated the experience even further. First came the PC Bacon Strips. Picture thick-cut smoked bacon, enrobed in fluffy, golden pancake batter, served with velvety butter and luscious syrup. Each bite was an enchanting medley of salty, sweet, and smoky notes, creating an irresistible harmony of flavors that danced on the tongue. Next, the Country Benedict was a sight to behold. Two robust smoked sausage patties held court on a pedestal of grilled cornbread, crowned by poached eggs and smothered in a rich, savory chipped brisket gravy. Each mouthful was an explosion of bold, hearty flavors, all backed by the comforting, homely side of homefries. Then there was the Mountain Hash. This masterpiece featured a bed of applewood smoked brisket hash, blanketed in perfectly cooked eggs, served alongside a duo of protein choices, toast, and that heavenly chipped brisket gravy. It was a stunning tribute to the power of smoked meats and the comforting allure of a traditional breakfast. Finally, the pièce de résistance: the Blueberry Cheesecake Waffle. Crafted in a classic Belgian style, this sweet masterpiece was the perfect finish to an unforgettable dining experience. Light, fluffy, and generously punctuated with juicy blueberries and creamy cheesecake bits, every bite was pure ecstasy. The menu does not end here. There are more offerings waiting to be savored, from the cheesy delight of Breakfast Quesadillas, to an array of omelets designed to satisfy every palate, to beverages both hot and cold to perfectly complement your meal. In essence, a visit to Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse is not just a meal, it's an experience. It's a place where smoked meats meet breakfast classics in an exquisite culinary ballet that's sure to make your taste buds leap with joy. So if you find yourself in Suffield, don't miss the chance to embark on this delicious journey. The Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse is waiting to welcome you with open arms and a table laden with delights. And remember, don't forget to try their Smoke & Fire sauce!

CT Beer Fest 2023: A Journey Through Hops and Happiness

Welcome to the visual diary of the Connecticut Beer Festival 2023, an event that brought together a vibrant tapestry of flavors, fun, and festivity, all under the banner of the Connecticut Brewers Guild. This album is more than just a collection of photographs; it's a story of community, craftsmanship, and celebration, encapsulating a day where the earthy aroma of hops mingled with the melodies of live music and the spirit of Earth Day.

Celebrating Earth Day with Every Sip

As you flip through these pages, you'll notice that this year's festival was not just about savoring the finest brews but also about honoring our planet. Held on Earth Day, the event intertwined environmental consciousness with the joy of beer tasting, reminding us of the delicate balance between indulging in our passions and preserving our world.

65 Breweries, Infinite Flavors Each photograph is a tribute to the 65 breweries that participated, showcasing their unique stories, brewing artistry, and the people behind the pint. From classic lagers to experimental ales, the range of flavors and styles was as diverse as the brewers themselves. These images capture the essence of their craft – the meticulous selection of ingredients, the precise brewing processes, and the shared joy of creating something extraordinary.

Rhythms and Brews: The Soundtrack of the Festival As you delve deeper into this album, you'll feel the pulse of live music that graced the event. Bands and artists, local and beyond, provided the perfect soundtrack to the festival, creating an atmosphere that was both electrifying and intimate. Each photo echoes the chords and melodies that filled the air, adding an auditory dimension to this visual journey.

? A Community United by Beer ?

Beyond the beers and the bands, these images capture the heart of the festival – the people. From enthusiasts and connoisseurs to curious first-timers, the festival was a melting pot of individuals united by their love for good beer. Smiling faces, clinking glasses, and animated conversations fill these pages, a testament to the community spirit that the Connecticut Brewers Guild fosters.

Memories Preserved ?

As you reach the end of this album, we hope that the memories of CT Beer Fest 2023 linger on. Whether you were a participant, a brewer, or just an admirer of the craft beer community, these photographs are a gateway back to those moments of joy, discovery, and unity. Until the next pour at CT Beer Fest 2024, let's raise a glass to the memories made and the friendships forged.

Cheers to the Connecticut Brewers Guild, to Earth Day, and to the timeless art of brewing!
