Infinity Hall Bistro - Norfolk, Connecticut

Rural Intelligence Food  Now you can really make it a night on the town when you attend a concert at the exquisitely renovated Infinity Hall in Norfolk (just over the border from Southfield, MA). On May 1, Infinity Hall Bistro opened an ambitious one-size-fits-all restaurant where you can get everything from an edamame potstickers ($13) and lobster hushpuppies ($12) to salmon picatta ($29) and petite sirloin steaks with wild mushroom ragoût, rosemary polenta and balsamic glaze ($29).  At the bar, you can’t go wrong with the perfectly cooked Black Angus burger on a sturdy sweet roll with caramelized onions and cheese ($14+).  The drink menu is meant for partying: There are cucumber, lavender and espresso martinis ($12) and Infinity Cocktails such as “I’m Jazzed” (Absolut, Peachtree Schnapps, Midori and pineapple juice, $9) and Rhythm & Blues (Makers Mark, blackberry rosemary syrup and house-made lemonade, $9). The dining has been decorated with jazzy colors, comfortable chairs, and stunning framed black-and-white photographs of rock-and-roll’s pioneers from the 1960s and 1970s, which gives Infinity Hall a sense of being part of pop-music history.  And even on a Tuesday night when there was no concert upstairs, this joint was jumping.

20 Greenwoods Road (aka Route 44); 860.542.5531
Dinner: Thursday - Saturday, 4:30 - 9 p.m.; Sunday, 4:30 - 8 p.m.
Always open on show nights for dinner & lunch for matinees.
