Confused customers Gyroscope, located at 484 S. Main Street in the former Golden Chicken space, has had a partial ownership change. But, the restaurant’s Facebook page says the restaurant has permanently closed, it hasn’t – and the old website still remains with specials that are no longer valid. The current owners hope to have all the online information straightened out this week to avoid confusion. Until then, the new website is http://manchestergyroscope.com And fans, fear not, the recipes remain the same. The menu still features classic Greek dishes, like pastitsio ($11.99), moussaka ($11.99), dolmades ($7.99) and a selection of gyros. The new menu also has options like cheeseburger ($6.50), steak tip dinner ($13.99) and buffalo chicken tenders ($9.99) and a kid’s menu.
