A Boston restaurateur completed a deal this week to buy the Stockyard Food and Spirits restaurant property in Brighton for $4 million.

The popular steakhouse, located along Market Street and visible from the Massachusetts Turnpike, abruptly closed in mid-July after a 42-year run.

In a deal signed on Thursday, Vineland Street Realty, LLC paid $4,050,000 to 135 Market Street, LLC for the restaurant property, which comprises just more than one acre of land, including a lot with more than 125 parking spaces, state land records show.

The eight parcels that make up the site are valued at a combined $2.35 million, according to the city's assessing department website.

Vineland Street Realty is owned by Michael G. Conlon Jr., a 45-year-old Brighton native. Several weeks after the Stockyard's closure, Conlon announced that he planned to buy and reopen the restaurant.

He has said he intends to maintain the restaurant's general concept, but will introduce a new menu and make some cosmetic improvements.

Conlon and his brother-in-law and business partner Joseph Greene run several restaurants in Boston: the Blarney Stone in Dorchester, West on Centre in West Roxbury, the 21st Amendment on Beacon Hill and the original Paramount on Beacon Hill along with a newly-opened Paramount in South Boston.

The entity that sold the property is run by Mark G. Manning. He and his brother Neil Manning Jr. owned and ran the Stockyard until its recent closure. Their father, the late Corneilus "Neil" Manning and his wife, Lillian, bought the property more than four decades ago and built the restaurant.
