Dessert:

Summer berry shortcake

Coyoty eats a grilled hanger steak with a Bad Wolf.

At NIXS in Hartford, CT.


Grilled hanger steak with “spicy chimichurri sauce, spicy aioli, garlicky French fries”, roasted red peppers, and watercress with balsamic dressing. The fries tasted very good with the dressing on them.


Bad Wolf: “Redemption Rye Whiskey, Honey Simple Syrup, Fresh Orange, Meyer’s Lemon Juice”. Very tasty.


Coffee.


Drink menu. I photographed this mainly to remind me what was in the Bad Wolf, but I liked how it turned out.
