The burger at Harlan Publick is always the right move. You know, the one on the Wave Hill Breads English muffin, with the sweet, salty bacon jam, and the cheddar ale sauce that drips down the plump brisket blend patty. No one would blame you if you ordered it every time. It’s that good and should be mentioned amongst Connecticut’s best burgers.
Spoiler: Harlan Publick is more than just a burger. When Harlan Publick reached out to CTbites with a brunch invite, I jumped all over it. SoNo’s my ‘hood and I needed to know if I could get over their burger or at least forget about it for one visit.
Harlan’s rendition of chicken & waffles was a nice first step. Sweet glazed Korean fried chicken with chili flakes atop a fluffy Belgian waffle with smoked maple syrup definitely made me push thoughts of my “ex” briefly out of my mind.
If you are a healthy bruncher. Publick has you covered with house-made granola and yogurt, an array of salads, a quinoa burger (it’s phenomenal, I’ve had it at one of their other establishments), and smoked turkey hash with quinoa, sweet potatoes, kale, and sunny eggs that made me (if ever so briefly) divert my attention from the fried chicken.
