In 1913, Frank Manale bought a corner grocery store at Napoleon Avenue and Dryades to open Manale’s Restaurant. From the beginning, Manale’s was a family affair. The DeFelice family then owned the restaurant for four generations, a total of 106 years. In 2019, the restaurant was sold to Jessica and Ray (deceased 2019) Brandt.
In 2023, Dickie Brennan & Co. welcomed Pascal's Manale into their restaurant family.
