Stanley Hong's Mannia Cafe


 Stanley Hong's Mannia Cafe

To a collector in Bloomfield Hills, MI
This daily painting is the old sign for Stanley Hong's Mannia Cafe, another abandoned business in Detroit. It opened around 1968, known as  "Detroit's most beautiful Chinese-American restaurant" After closing the building became the Omega Baptist Church and then the Grace Fellowship Baptist Church.  It is currently abandoned. This is from a photo of mine taken in the mid 80's.
