It's noticeably less cold. Let's go out and get a glass of wine!
 

It finally feels like spring will actually come this year. Now that the daily high is above freezing, here are a couple of fine establishments where you can shake off those winter blues.

 

Krust: Inside this chic, geometric storefront, you'll find some of the best woodfired pizza around. It's perfect with Sweet Cheeks Pinot Fusion. 686 Main St, Middletown

 

Blue Plate Kitchen: With North American food from New Mexico to Nova Scotia, this upscale diner is like a road trip in your home state with Sweet Cheeks Riesling riding shotgun and Pappas Pinot Blanc in the back seat. 345 N Main St, West Hartford
