The Stockyard restaurant in Brighton expects to open under new ownership this month.
The popular steakhouse, located along Market Street and visible from the Massachusetts Turnpike, will open in January, according to the restaurantís website. The locationís Yelp page specifies the opening date as Jan. 31.
The former owners abruptly closed the restaurant six months ago after a 42-year run.
In October, Vineland Street Realty, LLC, paid $4 million to buy the property, which comprises just more than one acre of land, including a lot with more than 125 parking spaces, state land records show.
The entity is run by Brighton-native Michael G. Conlon Jr., who has said he intends to maintain the restaurant's general concept, but will introduce a new menu and make some cosmetic improvements.
The restaurantís website includes a link to apply for open positions, and its Twitter and Facebook pages have said recently that gift certificates issued by the Stockyardís old ownership will be honored once the location opens.
Conlon and his brother-in-law and business partner Joseph Greene run several restaurants in Boston: the Blarney Stone in Dorchester, West on Centre in West Roxbury, the 21st Amendment on Beacon Hill and the original Paramount on Beacon Hill along with a newly-opened Paramount in South Boston.
Mark G. Manning and his brother Neil Manning Jr. owned and ran the Stockyard until its recent closure. Their father, the late Corneilus "Neil" Manning and his wife, Lillian, bought the property more than four decades ago and built the restaurant.
