This Weekend, Have Brunch at Harlan Brasserie, a New Spot in Hartford

Chef Chris Bateman's career took him from New York to Maui to Dubai, and in each place, he dug deeper into his craft. Now more than 10 years after he graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in NYC and embarked on an adventure around the globe, Chef Chris has settled at Harlan Brasserie in Hartford. After all, he grew up in Connecticut—actually got his start in Stamford—so returning to his old stomping grounds made perfect sense.

As the executive chef at Hartford's Harlan Brasserie, Chris teams up with the seasoned chef and restaurateur Stephen Lewandowski to offer a menu of French fare with a contemporary American twist. Whether you swing by for an "adult" liquor-infused snow cone during happy hour or come in for a gruyere-stuffed omelet during brunch, Harlan Brasserie will delight and surprise your taste buds.
