The lop and I were totally spoilt last Sunday when we were treated to dinner and a show 🙂
Dinner was at the ultra vibey Cafe Manhattan in the heart of Greenpoint and the entertainment for the night was none other than the super cool chicks of 3 TONS OF FUN! If you don’t know who these girls are then you have been living under a rock. We first saw them in action at Madame Zingara (quite a few years ago) and they were the highlight of the show. Soooo when we heard that they were performing at Café Manhattan, we just had to see them again 🙂
Our table was booked for 7:30pm which gave us plenty of time to enjoy a delicious dinner before the show (which started at 9pm).
We decided on the starter Nachos to share (R47) – I am obsessed with Nachos so it’s hard to wow me… but these were good. They were big, covered in cheese and came with all the right trimmings – Salsa, Guacamole and Sour Cream… So many places leave the sour cream out BUT it is a crucial element to a smashing bowl of Nachos. We were pretty full after these guys so decided to take a little breather before ordering our mains.
The supporting act came on stage at about 8pm (we didn’t get his name) – he was a dude with a guitar, a voice and a vibe – just the kinda guy to get the mood going before the girls were ready to start. By the time we were ready to order our mains, the restaurant was full up with everyone eating, drinking and being merry 🙂
I ordered the Banele’s New York Strip (R126)– 250g prime rump steak topped with garlic pepper sauce – to die for – and served with chips and veg. YUMMMMMMMM yum yum! The steak was juicy and tender and the sauce combination was perfect.
Lop ordered the Surf & Turf (R135) – crumbed calamari & 250g Sirloin Steak served with chips, veg and tartar sauce. Our waiter brought Mrs Balls Chutney to our table which was a big plus for Lop… you don’t often get Chutney at restaurants (especially without requesting it first), anyhoooo… Lop reckons the two go together like, well like… steak and chutney 😉
And THEN it was time for 3 TONS OF FUN. These girls are such rockstars. They sing beautifully and their stage presence is amay-may! The restaurant was heaving, everyone from the bar area had found a spot to sit, stand, dance, whoop whoop for the entire time that these girls entertained us.
Café Manhattan is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they have something for everyone – Brekkies (R42-R59), salads (R35-R66), Burgers (R71-R99), Steaks (R119-R155), combos (R99-R149)
