A Spicy Green Bean Grows in Glastonbury

A Spicy Green Bean Grows in Glastonbury

Don't let the cartoon art on the red walls or the cutie-pie menu ("Kooky Konkocktions," "Super Duper Suppers!!!") put you off. The food at the Spicy Green Bean (860/657-3500, spicygreenbean.com), a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Glastonbury, is far from silly. More like joyful and exuberant, annd a real find for the budget-minded—it's BYOB and nothing's over $20. The drill is straightforward: four appetizers, four entrées and four desserts, a different menu every week. Chef/owner Kathy Denisiewicz cooks with verve and imagination. a mini grilled cheese that floats in  the French onion soup. Surf-and-turf sliders pair crisp fried oysters with seared beef. Asian short ribs come with mac 'n cheese. It's not haute cuisine but it's fun, and you won't go home hungry—or bored.
