The Copper Grouse

With dark wood floors, a coffered ceiling, wainscoting and wallpapered walls, this restaurant in the new Taconic Hotel in Manchester feels like an old New England tavern — but with an up-to-date menu. Delicious dishes from our meal included a plump crab cake with a roasted poblano aioli and pineapple chutney, and grilled swordfish with a sweet potato-crab hash. The lively bar has become a favorite gathering spot in Manchester.
