Garden District Italian restaurant Altamura (2127 Prytania St.) will close, the owners annouced on the its Facebook page July 27. Manhattanjack (4930 Prytania St., 504-897-5551; www.facebook.com/manhattanjacknola) proprietor Jack Petronella and chef Coleman Jernigan opened the restaurant last summer on the ground floor of the Magnolia Mansion, which also houses a boutique hotel.

  Altamura was inspired by Petronella's upbringing in New Jersey and named for the hillside region in Puglia, Italy, from which his grandparents emigrated.
