Cotton Manchester NH--time goes on...and on...

whs | Sep 10, 2010 05:11 PM

Went to the "Have Knife Will Travel" event at Cotton on Sept 2. Matt from Richard's Bistro did a great job, but what has happened to Cotton? The waitress took forever to come to our table, was totally uneducated about the special menu, and messed up the drink order (to her credit, she comped the drink). The place is stuck in the 90's, with the same tired, campy decor, and the regular menu features the same items that have been there time immemorial. Case in point: turkey schnitzel, been there since day one and was never anything special. Do we really need meatloaf on a menu in 2010??? At least they changed the stinky bathroom deodorant that used to greet you on your entrance. With all the great new downtown dining establishments, and places like Richard's that have re-invented themselves, Cotton has become a "dine-o-saur".
