Manhattan Grill expands space, menu
Wall Street is shrugging off the storms and celebrating oil prices dropping to their lowest price in five months.
Investors are also watching names in airline and auto sectors as these often see a pop when the price of oil drops.
It's been serving the downtown Louisville breakfast and lunch crowd for 11 years. Now Manhattan Grill is expanding more than its space.
Manhattan Grill opened the doors at its new location at Muhammad Ali Boulevard near 5th Street Tuesday morning.
The new space is twice as big as the old restaurant that was in the Legal Arts building. The big difference -- the new location has more dining room space.
And they're making it easier to grab lunch on the go. General Manager Jennifer Lary explains, "We are looking into the whole grab-and-goes. We have salads and sandwiches that we are going to make every morning. That way the lunch crowd in a hurry can just grab it and go."
Manhattan Grill has also expanded its hours, and is open from seven in the morning until five and hopes to cash in on the dinner crowd soon. Lary says, "With the whole dinner to go, we're looking into people getting off work, can come in here before we close and grab some dinner and take it home."
The restaurant is also looking to do catering and special events on the weekend.
