Sitting at the base of the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel which teeters on the event horizon of seaport village (FYI...that's nerd-speak for outer edge) is Redfield's sports bar. It's on my weekend walking route and has just been tempting me to come in for months now. Admittedly, it does have significant curb appeal, with the light from a thousand plasma TVs shining through the floor-to-ceiling windows and elegant decor. But can this scrappy little bar deliver substance to equal its flash? We'll get to that...right now. No.

Both the on-tap beer and food menus are lacking in both the quantity and quality of their respective offerings. There were only 4 beers on tap. OK, they had a Sam Adams seasonal so I can live with that. For lunch, I went with mini chili dogs.

Now, the only reason I went with chili dogs was that the selection was weak, and they dedicate a lot of space on their menu to them. Hmmm...is it possible that a great chef can take some animal taints, compress them into a cylinder, slather them with chili and cheddar cheese, plop the whole concoction on a bun, and craft a noteworthy signature dish? Well, maybe, but that didn't happen here. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad. It's just that I could have replicated the dish with ingredients from the local convenient store for a fraction of the price.

The service was pretty good. The bartender was friendly, fast (bear in mind, I was one of 3 people at the bar), and charming. I just wish they put a little more effort into their ingestibles...so much potential.
