Manton was a staple of the Minneapolis restaurant, and could often be found at the host stand or mingling with guests.

Brit’s honored Manton in a Facebook post Wednesday, calling him, “An amazing drummer and music teacher, a restaurateur like no other and a wonderful story teller.” The pub said Manton’s “enthusiasm for life was infectious and an inspiration for us all.”
