Manna's: phased out in favor of Brickyard Tavern
Manna, 42, a co-owner of the Brickyard with Glen Greco, said he’s honoring existing reservations at the banquet house but is no longer accepting any new ones.
“The pure size of it is a little overwhelming, and with the taxes, the costs of utilities rising, and the economy, people just don’t have the expendable dollars to do big banquets anymore,” he said.
Manna said many car dealerships that once held large banquets in his facility aren’t even in business anymore.
The restaurant and banquet house, located at 17 Low St. in Ballston Spa, has been for sale for about a year, Manna said. He’s owned it for six years and worked there for 12, when it was known as Jeron’s.
In November 2008, he partnered with Greco to launch the Brickyard Tavern and Grill on Milton Avenue. Now the men are looking to offer catering and expand the menu, which now features typical American fare like burgers, sandwiches and steaks.
“It’s very challenging to run two restaurants efficiently,” Manna said. “I’m basically focusing most of my attention and enthusiasm on Brickyard Tavern.”
