Hartford: Mayor Mike's Cheese Balls

IMG_2752, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

I've got another trip up to Connecticut coming up, so I'm contemplating Hartford food again. One of my favorite individual dishes up there is at Mayor Mike's, a semi-casual bar and restaurant a few blocks from Union Station.

By far, the best thing I've eaten there is the Mozzarella Cheese Balls. They're not the frozen sticks you get at Chotchkie's, which look like they popped out a machine months ago. These seem to be made fresh in-house. The cheese is gooey and wonderful. I like the sauce too. It tastes like there are actually tomatoes in it, unlike the generic marinara sauce you'd get in other places.

They always have a good beer selection, including a few New England beers that I can't always get in New York.
