I got the chance to check out a new restaurant located in Farmington, CT. Butchers & Bakers works with local farms to provide American Fare as well as great cocktails. While it’s clear that I love food, I’m really all about the vibes when choosing where to dine. Butchers & Bakers had a wonderful and warm atmosphere that made my meal that much better.
This restaurant is huge! I would definitely recommend it for large parties and special events. I grabbed a booth by myself and got to chatting with my waiter Jack! He gave me some great menu recommendations. We also spoke about the patio being perfect for brunch. Who doesn’t love brunch?
Butchers & Bakers actually has three full bars. I went with my classic cocktail, a mojito. And it was delicious of course. Mojito will always be my favorite because it’s so light and refreshing! I ordered the sliced meatball pizza for my entree. My apologies, I was way too hungry and had to step out of blogger mode. But trust me, it was bomb. The pizza had a thin crust with a robust sauce and the sliced meatballs nearly melted in my mouth. Yes I ate a whole pizza by my lonesome, don’t judge me!
Overall it was simply a good vibe. There was a smooth playlist going and televisions at one of the bars for those interested in sporting events. The decor was right up my alley with the exposed brick and industrial lighting. Their large installation of a bike to spell out the word food is so clever and beautiful to look at.
Jack suggested I have the cheesecake for dessert and your girl can never turn down cheesecake! Just like the cocktail and the pizza, the dessert was fresh and delicious! I can’t wait to get back to Butchers & Bakers when it warms up so that I can enjoy brunch out on the patio with friends! I also hear they have a really good happy hour so that will be on my to-do list as well.
