Market Place Kitchen and Bar, Avon CT - Review

    There is always something about new whether it's New Year, a new song or new company, there is a bit of freshness, charm, promise and thrill to it. As a foodie, new restaurants always do the same for me. Market Place Kitchen is a newly opened restaurant in Avon that we recently ventured.

    A high ceiling open modern kitchen and a brick wall with a fireplace, it felt cozy at first glance. I was quite impressed with the service in spite of a full pack Friday evening; they served gently and gracefully.

    We began with a Mediterranean sample platter consisting of roasted red pepper, hummus, falafel and eggplant puree with Nan. I got hook to the way it is presented on a cutting board. Falafel was crisp and scrumptious. Hummus was whipped and velvety, Olives slightly bitter succulent, sweet cornichons were complimenting to it. 

    For mains, we got Garden flatbread for kids. The flatbread was flavorful with healthful garden vegetable (Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini, Caramelized Onions, Wild Mushrooms, Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Roasted Shallot Crème, Grana Padano Parmigiano Cheese) and mildly aromatic olive oil. 

    I opted for Asian style Udon noodles and panned seared tofu with roasted Savoy Cabbage Slaw, Sweet Chili Soy, and Coconut Sauce. Taste is no complaining, but I was expecting little more exotic, it was like any other regular noodle. The chef could have been slightly more innovative. 

    My husband got Tuscan white bean burger. It served with Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Grilled Portobello Mushroom, Sliced Red Onions, and Organic-Hydroponics Bibb Lettuce. It was luscious and rightly cooked till inside and freshness of vegetables with crunchy sweet potatoes fries added perfect zing to it. Will surely recommend and wouldn’t mind ordering on my next visit. 

    For dessert, we delighted with flourless chocolate cake. It came with a dollop of ice-cream. Chocolate cake directly came from the oven with chilled ice cream. We already sensed it before tasting a bite. It is decadent enough to cheer you up.
    Market Place Kitchen sources from local, organic and sustainable harvested food and spirits. They have a great option for gluten-free, vegetarian and house made pasta too. The portions are quite huge compared to other organic or farm to table standard, can’t tell the same about the price. Regardless Market Place Kitchen added it's own zing to Hartford country’s food scene.

My rating is 3.75 out of 5.
