Rant about Manager @ Daily Catch on Waterfront

This not a review but a short rant about Manager at the Daily Catch on the Waterfront. Five of us were there on a Friday night about 10 days ago for dinner. We waited approximately 50 minutes for our meals during which time the waitress had totally disappeared. When we asked the Manager as to where our food might be, he responded very defensively and condescendingly replied that "...our food is hand-crafted" and something to the effect that you need to wait for the best meal you will ever have in Boston. I can't recall all of his words but I can tell you that he was extremely rude and defensive. Shortly thereafter one party at the table told him such and that made him even more rude and defensive. In addition, two of us could hear the Manager screaming at his bus help and food runners in close proximity to all the diners. Not sure what he meant by "our food is hand crafted" because their menu says that they use imported pasta (so they boil the pasta). I got the Linguine with Clams which is basically chopped garlic, olive oil, pasta and perhaps some chopped parsley, not exactly the most intricate, "hand-crafted" dish that I can think of. As an aside, the food was good, nothing exceptional but between the wait and the rude Manager, the meal wasn't entirely pleasant.
