Gracious Bakery Swings Open on Prytania With Expanded Menu

It has taken over the former Manhattanjack spot


Gracious Bakery swung open its doors over the weekend in Manhattanjack’s former location on Prytania. The newest Gracious Bakery has a larger menu than the other locations, with waffles as well as custom-blended coffee drinks.

This is the fourth location of the popular bakery and cafe. The original location is on Jeff Davis Parkway, and a second location opened on St. Charles Avenue in January 2017. A smaller, take-out only location, is located on Earhart.

Manhattanjack closed at the beginning of August, with allegations of mismanagement and unpaid employees quickly following the closure. Co-owner Coleman Jernigan had wanted to reopen the cafe without his business partner, Jack Petronella, but those plans never panned out.

The Flying Pig, a Southern restaurant, opened on Prytania on September 1, in Kyoto’s longtime spot. Kohai, an Osaka restaurant from a former Kyoto restaurant apprentice Kanetha Chau, opened on Prytania last month.
