Hello folks! Happy Thursday! Boy do I have a treat for you. I am such a sucker for fresh local fare. If a place advertises using locally sourced meat and freshly grown fruits and vegetables, chances are I’ll be the first in line to try it. That being said, a few of my friends had told me to try Hartford Square, as it’s very close to where I work. On one particularly lovely day, I asked my mother if she would care to join me at a Hartford Square for lunch. She and I always tend to go to the same few places over and over again, and we were both in the mood for a change. We were not disappointed.
We each ordered the Kale Salad with Pecorino and Almond Slivers, and a cup of the Watercress Soup. I am telling you folks, it was positively delicious. We were both “oohing” and “aahing” the entire time. And factor in the lovely atmosphere with the fresh flowers growing everywhere and the fountain creating the most calming ambiance, it was truly one of the best lunches we have had. Not to mention the service was absolutely incredible. I ordered my usual hot black tea with milk, and they just happened to bring out my tea in the most beautiful cup that very happily had the letter “A” on it, which is the first letter of my name. (See below photo as proof of this happy surprise). It just made me feel even more a home. My mother and I have been back numerous times, and I have already made plans with a friend to go back this week.
If you have yet to try Hartford Square on Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. and Broadway in downtown Albuquerque, I highly-highly suggest you check it out very soon. And with this gorgeous weather we’ve been having, it is the perfect place to relax outside and sip on a tasty beverage while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. See you there!
