The Mill at 2T has been kept a secret by those who don’t want to share the cozy, seven-table restaurant in the heart of Tariffville.
But word is getting out about the freshly prepared gourmet dishes, ever-changing menu and fabulous staff.
The Mill at 2T has an eclectic yet not pretentious menu. Meals from wild boar to top-notch steak are available. Desserts like the beloved brioche donuts with caramel sauce have many fans. The menu changes daily.
Seasoned restauranteurs Kelleanne and Ryan Jones recently moved back to New England to open The Mill at 2T. They aim to make guests feel like they are eating a meal in their home.
The beautifully restored textile mill in Tariffville, right by the Farmington River, is a showcase of warm red brick and heavy woodwork. It’s much like dining in a small bed and breakfast, where the kitchen is open but quiet and unobtrusive.
At the bar you can watch executive chef Chef Ryan Jones and his staff prepare the dishes he creates based on the availability of fresh, local foods.
About six entrees are presented each night, with prices ranging from $20 to $50. Reservations are required. Make them early and don’t be surprised by a short wait for a table.
The Mill at 2T is located at 2 Tunxis Road, Tariffville, CT. Reserve a table by calling 860-658-7890. Dinner is served Wednesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
