Bamboo Asian Cuisine
3 Melrose Dr., Farmington CT 06032 (on RT 4)
This is Asian fusion at its best; select from a variety of combinations and specials. Located directly across from the Mormon Temple. Plenty of window seating, lunch specials.
Green Tea Restaurant
1067 Farmington Ave, Farmington, CT 06032 (on Rt 4, just past Bamboo Asian Cuisine)
Fantastic Chinese food. The hot and sour soup is outstanding.
George’s Pizza and Restaurant
9 School Street, Unionville, CT 06085 (At the intersection of RT 4 and RT 167)
This is the Italian Restaurant that has outlasted (or destroyed?) all the competition. There’s a family style restaurant attached to the Olive Bar, an updated joint that has a big-city feel. The same menu is available on both sides of the building. Large portions. Plenty of local gossip.
There are numerous chain restaurants on both RT 4 in Farmington and RT 44 in Avon.
Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are also available in both towns!
