MANGHAL RESTAURANT CLOSED
In the true fashion of Chicago, a new kosher restaurant opens while another closes. As of today, Manghal Restaurant on Howard in Evanston is closed. Have you ever been there? What was your impression?
Bummer-ish. They were truly excellent when they opened but on my last 2-3 visits it seemed like they weren't making an effort. They were out of items and the food was just okay. I don't know which came first, it falling off my radar or the restaurant declining, but it wasn't nearly as good as when it first opened (I felt the same way about Taboun's California/Devon location).
We loved going their initially, but after awhile their prices were almost as high as Shallots - might as well go to Shallot's then. The quality had also been steadily declining. Can't say I will miss it terribly.
