For posts on various restaurants that I visited, go here.
Prologue: May 10th is National Small Business Day. One of those are these cute little mom and pop restaurants or locally owned cafes and dive-ins. This series brings forth those little nuggets of places that I visit for my meals.
A magical experience making you feel you are somewhere in Iceland in winter inside a warm igloo looking over the stars above you, when in reality you are in the middle of an urban town surrounded by concrete jungle.
Since Pandemic hit us in 2020 and when business had opened up again, quite a lot of restaurants have been catering for innovative ways to have safe distancing and at the same time have dining experience too. One such innovation were the Igloos. A couple of restaurants closer to where I live opened up Igloos in the backyard or parking lots of the restaurants. And we went to one in December celebrating holidays – Wood N Tap in Farmington, CT.
Here are my 2 cents:
- Igloos are beautifully constructed with fairy lights everywhere giving it the feeling of sitting under the stars.
2. They have a heater that runs with a generator for each igloo to keep the patrons warm.
3. Menu was the same that the restaurant served inside. However, there were specials offered, not sure if they wee just for the Igloos.
4. The restaurant usually comes with a price slightly higher, still affordable.
5. We got see another waning moon that night while returning back.
- The heater wasn’t one to begin with and probably it was because we were the first that day.
- The place says it can seat 6 to 8 people in each Igloo. But I think 6 people would be perfect.
- They have 2 hour limit to use the igloo and we felt it was a little too tight. Although they didn’t kick us out even though we went over by 30 mins. 🙂
- Not enough Chocolate and Marshmallows for the dessert we ordered – S’mores on Table Top. Although they gave us more without charge when asked.
