West Hartford's A'Vert Receives 'Very Good' Review From The New York Times

French brasserie is the fourth restaurant reviewed by the Times in the last full year.

Add A’Vert to the list of West Hartford restaurants reviewed by the New York Times in the last year.

The French brasserie owned by Dorjan Puka and David Borselle received a “very good” review from the Times, which said that the decor “dazzles,” and noted the quenelles (poached fish dumplings), duck confit, hanger steak with fries coq a vin, among other things.

“A roasted half-chicken was the best I’ve had in ages, unrivaled for moistness, crispiness and flavor,” raved the reviewer, who also said that the desserts “stress[ed] taste over artistry, whether a dark and intense chocolate pot de crème or a plate of extra-large profiteroles.”

Last year, the Times reviewed Sweet Chilli in October, Grants in August and Vinted in March.
