    From We-Ha.com, Owner Edgar Brambila said his goal is to be as welcoming as possible to the neighborhood. “I want people to feel transformed as soon as they walk in the door – to feel like they’re in Puerto Vallarta or Cancun,” he said. “We want to be here for a couple of generations, and the only way we will be is by earning the community’s respect, their business." Creating a great first impression, having service second to none, and offering a unique menu are factors that makes Ocho Cafe successful.

  • Arugula

    "Arugula feels like a West Hartford institution in the best possible way. It also feels as though you've landed in a wonderful mediterranean trattoria, where the servers are friendly, the food is delicious, well-prepared, homey, and affordable, and the staff is relaxed about letting you linger with your friends over your bottle of wine or coffees. The salads are fresh and lively and the flat-bread[s] [...] are simply delicious [...]. It's makes a fun meal to share apps, salads, and pizza."

  • Noble & Co

    West Hartford, Connecticut has a reputation as being trendy, hip, cool.  Noble & Co. can be found here, hidden in plain sight.

    The entrance is made to confuse. A subway access. HVAC mechanical room. Fallout shelter. Graffiti scrawls across white tiled walls. A steel door, dinged and dented. All create deception.

    Inside, an open elegant space. Chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The long  bar is topped with black marble, swirling smoke set against smooth squid ink stone. A cornucopia of liquors stretch to the ceiling at the back of the bar. Their specialty, whisky. A list of classic cocktails makes for a difficult decision.

  • Blue Elephant Trail

    • We use local produce as much as we can, supporting Connecticut and New England farmers and distributors who are our friends and neighbors. Local produce spends less time on a truck, so it is fresher and has less environmental impact. Buying local keeps jobs in Connecticut and supports our local economy;
    • We offer gluten-free versions of most of our dishes for those with specific dietary needs. If you let your server know ahead of time, we can also accommodate other food allergies and other restrictions;
    • We recycle our cooking oil through a partnership with Connecticut BioFuels into biodiesel, a clean-burning biodegradable non-toxic diesel alternative, helping to reduce negative environmental impact and reliance on overseas oil;
    • We participate in neighborhood events, town-wide festivals, regional fundraisers, and more! West Hartford and Connecticut have given a lot to our family, and it is our goal to give back even more.

    But even as we focus our attention on being a contributing member of this community, at the end of the day, it comes down to your dining experience. Dishes can be customized to any individual and our friendly and knowledgeable staff can do their best to help you navigate our menu.
