I have declared my love for many things, my husband, my son, wine, witty humor, etc... but Manera's is definitely in my top 10, maybe even before wine! (I know, right?!) This BYOB has chef(s) who must have gone to school to learn only the best way to prepare a dish. During this visit (it is my birthday go to), I had the scallops with orange gastrique. Their scallops are large and cooked to perfection. Gordon Ramsey would punch himself in the face because he couldn't do it as well. My frustratingly picky son had the crab cakes and before I could say "would you like to try a scallop?" his crab cakes were gone (the little jerk). Life is good when your eating there. It is nothing to look at esthetically and it is in a strip mall. I think their success may eventually lead them to bigger and better local. But for now, I'm happy sitting at their tables, inhaling their food and knowing that when I secure that reservation that my birthday will always be fabulous. Why just my birthday? I'm from PA, and I always visit during my bd week. Manera's is now part of my tradition.
