The Manhatten Project Restaurant occupies the location of the former Dixie Girl across from the post office in Los Alamos. This location was also previously occupied by the Central Avenue Grill. An interesting feature of this restaurant is the movable garage door windows that face Central Avenue to provide an al fresco-like dining experience when they are raised. It has a very extensive menu for lunch and dinner with prices that are comparable to other family style restaurants in Los Alamos. Patrons seemed to be a little younger than at other LA restaurants.
We ate lunch there for the first time this week. My lower calorie turkey burger with green chile on a pretzel bun was delicious and hefty enough that I had yummy leftovers for lunch the next day. My not-so-low calorie green chile-cheeze fries were also quite tasty. My friends split a sandwich of thinly sliced prime rib that came with a cup of au jus for dipping and a side of the fries. They said it was very good and cleaned their plates.
We got there right in the middle of the busy part of lunch hour, so service was a little slow, but attentive and polite. This restaurant should appeal to many people in Los Alamos.
