Help Manny’s Place restaurante

My name is Manuel Araújo ( better known as Manny). After living 14 years in New York City, I decided to come back home to Lisbon and open my little restaurant. It’s called Manny’s Place. 
i was finally living my dream. I had my restaurant open and doing very well  I had also fallen in love and my partner is the chef at the restaurant  
all this fell to pieces with covid-19. We had to close down for 2 months  
we just reopened on May 19 to start welcoming guests. It is still very slow and we are struggling to pay rent and other expenses. I truly believe that the world will overcome  this tragedy. Together we are strong. 
i humbly ask anyone who can help us survive this negative face. I am extremely grateful for all the help I can get to keep mydream alive. 
send virtual hugs and lots of love to all of you  
thank you
