A ribbon cutting was held Wednesday for Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood and G’s Steaks & Grinders, both located in Parkville.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin was joined Wednesday by city officials and Parkville residents and businesses to welcome the neighborhood’s newest members – Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood and G’s Steaks & Grinders.
“We’re thrilled to welcome these two new restaurants to Hartford and to Parkville,” said Mayor Bronin. “These are two great locations, and I want to thank Carlos Mouta and the owners of Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood and G’s Steaks & Grinders for being part of the energy and growth in Parkville.”
Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood, located in the former Oporto space, features Cajun-style seafood, full bar and outdoor patio seating.
“Parkville is a wonderful neighborhood and a great location for us to expand our business and it is my honor to work with and serve the great people of Hartford,” stated Hecheng Chen, a West Hartford resident and owner of Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood. Chen has owned and operated other restaurants in Connecticut including Ichiro Hibachi and Sushi in West Hartford, and will soon open Mr. Chow Asian Fusion on Park Road in West Hartford.
G’s Steaks & Grinders, located in the former Lena’s Pizza space, is built on the belief that cheese steaks should be special and carry that belief into everything they do.
“My goal is to bring back quality food with large portions and give people a product that they can’t get anywhere else. Parkville is where we want to be and we’re excited to become an active part of the community,” stated Michael Gay, owner of G’s Steaks & Grinders.
“We’re excited to welcome G’s Steaks & Grinders and Chosen 1 Cajun Seafood to Parkville and thank them for their investment in our community,” stated Carlos Mouta, owner of Parkville Management and the buildings that house the new restaurants.
“Today is another example of how working together with Mayor Bronin, city staff, and Parkville residents, businesses and community organizations, we continue to make Parkville such a wonderful neighborhood in which to live, work, play and worship,” added Mouta.
