Located in Downtown Hartford, across from the XL center, The Russell is a multi-story space steeped in preserved architectural detail. Visitors love the Russell’s interior, which reminds them of an intimate getaway in a classic island hotel. “The Russell should feel like home,” says owner Hugh Russell, “I wanted to create a warm and cozy atmosphere.”
Open for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and your special events with live entertainment, there’s always a memorable moment to be made at The Russell.
The food here is nothing short of amazing. I work near the restaurant so I eat here quite often. The food is always fresh and you get a full meal, meat rice and veggies, at a great price. I'd highly recommend this place to everyone. The jerk chicken is my go to!! 🙂
I wasn't even suppose to go there but soon as I walked by and smelled how great the food was I couldn't help but walk backwards & walk into there. Went straight for the bar service was great they were friendly & they made me feel comfortable & at home. Can't wait to go back there just to eat drink & talk to the 2 staff members I was talking too.
Enjoyed the Jerk pork lunch meal at The Russell Grab & Go which is open weekdays 11am to 2pm. This lunch spot has an up scale fast casual vibe that compliments the full restaurant but is very convenient for lunch. Reasonable prices and yummy food. Just walk up to the counter, tell them what you want, they dish it up in front of you. Pay at the register and your good to go. Kinda like Chipotle set in a fancy bar. I'll be back again.
