It's Only Natural, lovingly referred to as ION, has served Connecticut diners for more than 30 years. Initially a humble sandwich counter in the North end, ION has organically grown into a full service restaurant, bakery and art gallery. Longtime friend of all things ION, Kori Crosson, started our official blog: www.ionrestaurant.com/thesexycarrot
It's Only Natural has been voted "Best Vegetarian Restaurant" in the Hartford Advocate's readers poll since 1992. The entire menu is prepared on site using the best available, organic, local ingredients. We have a large selection of organic beer and wine, and a diverse menu, both of which are updated frequently to take advantage of what's local and exciting.
ION is also an art gallery, displaying the works of Connecticut artists. From paintings to duct tape wallets, ION's collection provides an interesting environment in which to enjoy a meal as well as shop. The deck, which doubles as an herb garden, is adorned with the work of Ted Esselstyn, of City Bench.
