The restaurant named Pascal's Manale suggests that Pascal possesses a "manale." I tried to find out what a manale is through Webster's Dictionary and on the Internet, but only found one suggested meaning: "In Amharic, an Ethiopian language, it means 'the one and only.'" Can you verify if this is the meaning behind Pascal's possessive manale?
In the case of the restaurant, a Manale is a person. Specifically, it refers to Frank Manale, who opened Manale's restaurant in 1913. Located at 1838 Napoleon Ave., the restaurant was run by Frank's nephew, Pascal Radosta. When Pascal became the owner, the restaurant became Pascal's Manale Restaurant. A similar situation occurred years later, when Ruth Fertel bought Chris' Steak House and later renamed it Ruth's Chris Steak House.
Barbecue shrimp, the signature dish at Pascal's Manale, was created in 1955 when a customer asked Radosta about a dish the diner had enjoyed in Chicago. The customer tried to describe the dish, and Radosta tried to recreate it. The result is history. Naming the dish barbecue shrimp is certainly misleading, since the shrimp aren't grilled or smoked and traditional barbecue sauce isn't an ingredient. The recipe calls for large shrimp cooked in a spicy pepper-butter sauce.
