“There’ll still be seafood, any change will be incremental … we’ll introduce some cool new snacks, and we’ll make it a bit more fun,” Daniel, son of Bill Drakopoulos said. A 2025 renovation is also part of the plans.

Rubis is happy to leave Manta in the hands of good operators. “There are a zillion new restaurants opening, and it’s getting harder as a single operator. It’s easier if you have [a few venues].”
