Last weekend, my wife and I spent a night in Manchester. We had driven by the queen city many times but never really explored the place.
We were on foot and looking for a place to dine. We found the Hanover Street Chop House, which looked good, but there was a 45 minute to 1 hour wait.
We could sit at the bar--which also had a wait list, please check with the bartender.
Which we did.
And...we got a spot within about 30 seconds of being added to the list.
Plus...it was a corner spot, so we could converse easily.
And...it was close enough to the live piano player to hear the music, but not so close as to drown-out our talking.
Oh my God! The prices! Glad we didn't have the whole family with us!
Spared at the last moment: There was a bar-menu with smaller portions, which is all we really wanted and had much more reasonable pricing.
We shared a beet salad with goat cheese, nuts and dried cranberries. Vaishali had a fancy meatloaf with garlic mashed potatos and shoestring onions. I had some steamed hard shell clams and a petite fillet (rare) with fried oysters.
The food was great and we had just enough of it to be satisfied.
The evening could not have worked out better!
