Giamano’s Restaurant, a fixture in Bradley Beach for more than 30 years, has closed its doors for good.
Owner Steffan Manno said the reality of not reopening the restaurant, which has occupied a spot on Main Street for three decades, has not yet hit him.
A year and a half ago Manno and three partners had plans approved by the borough for a new three-story construction building with parking and retail on the ground level and residential units above.
But Manno said he is still not sure what the next step will be for the project or his future in the borough.
The next step for him is the public auction, by The Auctioneers Group, being held Jan. 17 beginning at 10 a.m.
The auction will allow buyers to purchase all the equipment, furniture and fixtures along with china, flatware, decorative items, bar stools and dining chairs.
Outdoor seating arrangements and an outdoor fountain will also be auctioned.
The liquor license, a retail plenary consumption license, is also up for auction.
Manno said the 60-year-old license has a grandfather clause, allowing for the sale of packaged goods.
The public, dealers and restaurateurs are welcome to attend the auction.
Manno said since news of the closing has become known customers have been calling sharing memories of family parties and events held there.
