Manchester could soon be home to the first Connecticut location of the popular Dave & Buster's restaurant/arcade chain. 

The Shoppes at Buckland Hills and its parent company, General Growth Properties, have submitted an application to the Manchester Planning Department to construct a 26,400-square foot location of Dave & Buster's on land owned by the company next to the recently opened Market Grill

The application was submitted on Friday, July 19, 2013, and no date for a hearing has been scheduled yet. 

On its website, Dave & Buster's describes itself as "the only place with a restaurant serving everything from wings to New York strips, a bar with the best happy hour and the latest interactive and video games. Let your inner kid run free." It has locations in 26 states and Canada.

Great because that's what we need... more restaurants.

I think I would support this if we didn't already try it with The Blue Turtle which failed. The problem isn't the amount of restaurants in Manchester, its the quality. They are all mediocre chains, it would be nice to have something decent to attract people besides perhaps Caveys. Maybe a nice Max type restaurant or high end sushi/hibachi. Someplace you could go and have dinner, wine and then catch a play at the Little Theatre of Manchester.
