The Tamarin Grill in down town Hartford is a great place. I had to spend 3 weeks away from home and ate my last 3 dinners at the Tamarin, just to be able to try more items on the menu. The food is innovated Thai cooking with featuring wonderful flavors the freshest of ingredients and artful presentation. The quality of the menu and the items served rival any I have encountered on the east coast. William the owner and Amy the hostess were attentive and gracious and made the experience of dinning out more of dinning with friends then with going to a restaurant. Future visits to the Tamarin will require a four hour round trip and be well worth the driver from Albany, NY.
