Heaven is here.
Manna’s Restaurant, which was established in 1984, offers the good stuff.
The eatery at the 2331 Frederick Douglas location features a large self-serve soul food and salad bar.
It is one of 7 Manna’s Restaurants throughout the city, with 4 in Harlem and 3 in Brooklyn.
The buffet’s trays are filled with soul staples such as mac and cheese, collard greens, fried chicken, ribs, pig feet, candied yams, and rice and beans.
“[People] come here for the variety and the customer service,” explained manager Wayne Zanders, who has worked at Manna’s for 4 years.
The eatery is also a haven for vegetarians, with an abundant selection of salads, grilled vegetables and fresh pastas.
