David Dietz, owner of BBC Tavern and Grill in Greenville. "He had a heart of gold. He had a keen business sense and he ran great operations."Mansoory, who grew up in Centreville, was a 1983 graduate of Alexis I. du Pont High School and the University of Maryland. In 1997, he bought the former Knuckleheads bar on Washington Street and transformed it, through several renovations, into the Washington Street Ale House.Later, he opened Mikimotos, named after the Japanese pearls, in 2000 just as U.S. diners began developing a surging interest in Japanese cuisine. The eatery, next door to the Ale House, became one of the city's most popular restaurants.Buy PhotoDarius Mansoory, the owner of Mikimotos and the Washington Street Ale House in Wilmington, died while vacationing in Cuba. (Photo: Damian Giletto/The News Journal)Presto!, a casual eatery and coffee house at 12th and Washington streets in Wilmington, adjoining the Ale House, opened in 2006. Mansoory, who enjoyed the Delaware beaches, followed it up with Stingray Sushi Bar + Asian Latino Grill in Rehoboth Beach two years later.In 2003, Mansoory was named Restaurateur of the Year by the Delaware Restaurant Association. To receive that honor, a restaurateur must be judged by his or her peers, customers and employees to have changed the dining scene in some way."He was a very creative guy when he was building his businesses," said Carrie Leishman, president and chief executive officer of the Delaware Restaurant Association. "He had a good marketing vibe and sense."STORY: Hot food trends for 2017In recent years, Mansoory spent several years in court fighting for the right to build a 720-square-foot patio at Stingray after a city of Rehoboth board denied his request for a variance. The state Supreme Court eventually ruled in Mansoory's favor, but he said the legal dispute was costly.In a recent conversation with The News Journal, Mansoory said he had big plans for his Wilmington eateries in 2017."I'm just now getting back into work full time and have my plate full fine-tuning Mikimotos and the Ale House," he said in October.Mansoory said he planned to reopen Presto!, which he shuttered in 2014, after the 2016 holidays."June 4, 2017, will be the 20-year anniversary of the Ale House, and I definitely will have Presto! open and everything else running razor sharp as we celebrate that miMonday, November 21, 2016
Philippines. Friendly people.• What would you change about Fauquier?I’m not in the position of changing anything in Fauquier. I like the changes, but . . . in 10 to 15 years, it probably will be like Centreville, a big city. I welcome the changes if they are good. Now, behind my house, they have all kind of houses from the city. Big subdivisions. You don’t know who your neighbor is now.• What do you do for fun?Hunting, fishing. I love to run.• What’s your favorite place in Fauquier?Lake Brittle is fun near New Baltimore on a weekend or if you want to be alone. But now they have too many houses out there.• What will Fauquier be like in 10 years?It will be another big city. It’s growing.• Favorite TV show?I don’t watch too much TV. I like to watch the news and Sunday football.• Favorite movie?“An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Top Gun.”• Favorite book?Nicholas Spark’s books. That must be the feminine side of me coming out. He’s a good writer.• Favorite vacation spot?Back home in San Diego. Now, I have to drive at least three hours to see the ocean.• Favorite food?Everything is my favorite as long as it’s good. You put something in front of me and it looks good, I’ll eat it. Italian is good. I love Mexican.• What is the best advice you have ever received? From whom?When I was in the military I learned don’t walk away from responsibility or discrepancy. I learned that in the Army. It’s not going to get fixed if you don’t do something.A postal co-worker, Buddy Curtis, told me when I started as a mail carrier told me, “Always take care of the customer.”• Who’s your hero and why?Gen. Douglas MacArthur, because he saved the Philippines (during World War II). He went back to get us liberated.• What would you do if you won $5 million in the lottery?I’ve never thought about it. I guess help people who are in need. You won’t really know until it happens. It’s never going to happen so that’s why I’ve never thought about it.
