Manny’s Grant Park slated to open next week

The neighborhood pub is slated to open March 22 at 580 Woodward Ave., in the space previously occupied by now-shuttered breakfast spot Stone Soup. 

Manny’s comes from longtime Atlanta barman Manuel Maloof, who is the grandson of the founder of Manuel's Tavern. 

Maloof is one of younger members of the extended family of Manuel’s Tavern fame , and besides working there was most recently a server at North Highland Pub.

The bar will feature an extensive wine list, 20-plus beers on draft, and house cocktails, including Moscow Mule slushies. The covered patio area will feature TVs to watch Atlanta sports and a small game room with darts and other pub favorites.

Atlanta Magazine reported in January that the menu will serve a variety of snacks, soups, salads, sandwiches, large plates and desserts, as well as special brunch and late night menus. Sample dishes include pretzel calamari, sweet potato stew, banh mi and fish and chips. Morgan Underwood, who previously worked at Wisteria, will serve as executive chef and Christy Nixon of North Highland Pub will serve as bar manager.

In early 2016, Paces Properties purchased the Grant Park property at the corner of Woodward Ave. and Boulevard where Manny’s is located, with long-term plans to add new restaurants and other amenities to the neighborhood. A Jimmy John’s sandwich shop is already open in the spot next to Manny’s. 

Paces, known for developing Krog Street Market, has invested in several other projects along close-by Memorial Drive, including Larkin on Memorial and Atlanta Dairies.

The AJC has reached out to Manny’s for a menu and more information.
