Saw some doughnut place (non-chain) is opening on Manhattan Ave in the 'Ville for summer '11.  Tons of new restaurants lately, its hard to keep up.

Varsity Donuts. Same people that open Acme, Dusty and Thread are opening it up with the guy who owns most of Bluestem and used to be involved with The Palace. They're hoping to open in June. They're doing crazy toppings, one of which is maple bacon.

Manhattan needs a good Mexican place.  We have several, but all of them (with the exception of Los Potrillos, which is decent) are absolutely dreadful.

thank you for pointing this out. this is probably the biggest issue facing manhattan to date. if it doesn't get fixed, people may start to transfer. vive los gatos.

I have not had them, I've just seen several versions. Some are long john style donuts. The size of the bacon varies, some just have strips of bacon on top.

1) http://www.umimanhattan.com/#

also, what about their facebook page and the fact that they like thesandwichblog?


2) who else is excited for the little southern california mexican/mexican taco type place that they are building behind so long. omg, it is going to be amazing. thank you julie haynes.

she is elite.

I implored her to add a fried chicken waffle taco.  Doubt she will.

yes incredibly elite. also, thoughts on paking it the day they open? should be late this summer from what i last heard.

Sneak preview tonight.

I come back from Europe in a month, and you guys are literally making me salivate. So true about there being no good Mexican restaurant it really pisses me off.
  Great to hear about Manhattan getting more eateries, proves how this recession aint got sh*t on us.

Heard a Chinese place was going in next to a Chinese place and thought it was super weird.


Will be trying Donut Valhalla soon though.   :kstategrad:

El Tapatillo probably takes the "Best Mexican Food in MHK" crown, but then again, that's not saying a whole hell of a lot.

Also, did Los Potrillos close?? the last 3 times ive been by (around 5 or 6pm) no cars were around the place.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.
