THE RESTAURANT Menu  ·  Specials

The Puritan history has a very deep and storied tradition. From its opening in 1917, the hard work and caring of the Pappas and Canotas families have lent a tremendous amount of pride to the Puritan name. "Chicken tenders" actually originated at the Puritan and to this day are still the most requested dish on the menu! As well, the boneless breast of chicken with our famous special sauce (a creation of Charlie Pappas) is still the most asked about recipe on the menu.

As you look around the restaurant, you will see pictures of Arthur Pappas and Louis Canotas, the first generation; you will also see pictures of Charlie Pappas, Plato Canotas and Milton Canotas, the second generation. The blood, sweat and tears that these gentlemen put into making the Puritan what it is today will never be forgotten. The Puritan is a part of the lives of so many - in 1990, Charlie Pappas estimated that over 50,000 greater Manchester residents had worked for the Puritan! Visit us today and enjoy a piece of Manchester's history.
