Original Story:

Many of Elmwood’s favorite eateries have already signed on to participate in the third annual Taste of Elmwood, and will bring an assortment of delicious menu items and beverage selections together for guests to sample – all under one roof.

“One thing that I love about West Hartford restaurants is the variety of tastes and settings,” commented Dr. Rick Liftig, a local dentist who serves as president of the Elmwood Business Association.

There’s a whole crowd of venues just waiting to be sampled and surprise – they aren’t all in the Center! The Taste of Elmwood puts a spotlight on these local gems and is a great chance to expand your palate. Plus, as always, there’s free parking!” Liftig said.

Taste of Elmwood is also a fundraiser, and will benefit the Elmwood Business Association as well as Saint Brigid School.

•  Bombay Olive
•  Classic Cakes
