This past Sunday, the New York Times carried a glowing review of Treva, a restaurant I have shown you before. So, yesterday I went there to take more photos.
The owner-chef introduced himself. Dorjan Puka opened this restaurant eighteen months ago, after a dozen years as a chef with the Hartford area Max Restaurant Group. The restaurant is small -- two rooms for dining and a separate bar -- and stylishly spare. It always seems to be crowded. In nice weather, they have outdoor seating in front, on the main street of West Hartford Center, as well as a more intimate outdoor patio behind the restaurant.
The food is Italian. The New York Times reviewer drooled over the prosciutto and the pasta. I have been to Treva two times since my post in December 2011, once having fish and the other time having a pasta dish. Everyone liked their meals. The Times review has reminded me that it is time to go back again.
