We hadn't been to the Manor in a while, so a recent evening found us driving back again. It's a bit of a drive from home, but worth it.
It appears that the menu has been enhanced and expanded since we were last there. Even more food items on the menu made it that much more difficult to narrow it down. We munched on fresh French bread, plain and with olives while we tried to decide what to order.
My wife chose chicken calabrio, chunks of sauteed chicken with roasted garlic, spinach, red peppers and gorgonzola cheese tossed with fettuccini. When it arrived, it tasted a little bland, which I attributed to her asking them to go light on the garlic. Turns out that, being a new dish, they'd neglected the gorgonzola. Ooops. Before this was realized, though, we got a small container of feta, which also brought the dish to life. In either case, my wife was pleased. She's looking forward to a repeat performance, but with the gorgonzola. A bowl of chicken noodle soup before the entree was very tasty, and clearly made fresh.
I chose Dijon scallops, halved sea scallops sauteed and presented in a very light Dijon cream sauce that perfectly complemented, but did not overpower, the scallops. I got a baked potato instead of the rice, and my salad was served with delicious bleu cheese dressing.
Dessert (we shared) consisted of several layers of lemon cake with raspberry filling and whipped cream garnish. I thought it was delicious, but was trying to hold down my blood sugar, so I only had a couple of bites.
Service was excellent. Tables were set with real tablecloths and real napkins. A recent minor remodeling brightened up the main dining room. And the tab, including two drinks and a dessert, was lower than one might anticipate for the food and atmosphere.
