If you can't find your way to New York City or Boston for the evening, you can now enjoy a similar experience right in West Hartford. Cuvee' is a Food, Wine and Champagne room as their slogan boasts. However, they offer up a lot more than just those three items. In addition to wine and champagne, they have a full bar and beer as well with quite an exhaustive list of signature martinis and other cocktails. The food items are comparable to those found at a cocktail reception but pleasing to the eye and good nibbles for sharing around your table. Not to be missed are the Crostinis and the Hummus with warm Naan bread. Steer clear of the Sexy Donuts for dessert and try the Chocolate Souffle' instead.
The atmosphere is nightclub-esque with low lighting, comfy sofa like seating and mood enhancing candles. The staff waiting tables were friendly and prompt with service. Go early if you want to try food because they fill up quite quickly on the weekends and the scene turns to more of a club in the late hours. Reservations are accepted for parties of 4 or more. They are open Tuesday through Sunday from 5 pm until late. They are located at 37 Raymond Road.
