Restaurant Week Toledo: March 7-13

Posted on

Northwest Ohio has a tremendous local restaurant scene and we at Manhattan’s are appreciative that we have been a successful part of that for over a decade. Our roots are in Toledo and our business is family, so when it comes to supporting and giving back to our neighbors we jump.

Leadership Toledo has come up with an idea that promotes our local dining scene while helping to fundraise for their charitable ways. The idea is simple, we conceptualize meals that highlight our cuisine and for each of these customized meals purchased during the week of March 7-13th, you will be directly supporting Youth Leadership Toledo. Manhattan’s will be offering a $10 lunch option, a $10 for two appetizers offering as well as dinner and dessert for $20.

The Youth Leadership Toledo initiative, modeled after the Community Leadership Program, gathers local teenagers who have been nominated by their schools for their leadership skills in their schools and society. Students are then introduced to a variety of civic issues and regional concerns by local leaders. While in the program students are able to participate in volunteer community improvement projects, which fosters an inspiration to become active leaders now and throughout their lives.

Manhattan’s is happy to encourage Youth Leadership Toledo as we know the possibility it presents for our community and neighbors. What better way to support a fantastic local charity than by enjoying a meal? So whether you are one of our regulars or have never experienced Manhattan’s we encourage you to come out for the food and stay for the people, all while giving back to our community right along with us.

Summertime on Adams Street

Posted on

Adams Street is a great place to watch spring become summer. Our neighborhood in Uptown Toledo in an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, storefronts, and apartments; and they all shine a little brighter when the sun comes out. Winter is gone and the mess that spring makes has been cleared to reveal sidewalks for strolling with your dog, streets full of skateboards and cyclists, and green spaces to enjoy a book or a game of soccer with friends.

Every year, even as the dining room quiets down due to neighborhood festivals, backyard cookouts, and family vacations, the sunshine guarantees the restaurant will host some patio people. From our vantage point at the intersection of Adams and Jackson Streets you can see the Hillcrest historic sign over the city scape, the Reading Room Park take shape in the lot across the street, children playing, and tenants grilling outside of the Chenney Flats.

Customers are discovering the locally owned shops across the street. Work weary office employees are meandering from 12th Street to 20th in search of a patio for Happy Hour. A few blocks away in either direction are new parks for residents and visitors alike.

Summer is a lightness in our step. The smell of thunderstorms on the wind. Freckles emerging from a long winter. It is the sound of the birds who have returned home giving us good reason, once again, to look up.

Even the summer events we host are so hopeful and emblematic of the optimism of seasons’ changing: graduation parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, wedding receptions. But even among all that excitement, don’t forget to find a quiet opportunity to sit on the patio and stare at the sky.
