We're gathered here today to mourn the loss of a strikingly good-looking Southern-style diner.
33 Greenwich, it's like we hardly knew ye. You had so many more tea-brined fried chicken platters to share. So many more quaint jars of oysters to present. So many more dates to host in front of that alluring mural.
...And so it's a good thing Chef Harold Moore's team has taken over the space and is keeping things pretty damn similar around here.
Behold the all-too-familiar beauty of Greenwich Grille: the latest incarnation of that nice-looking Americana-style space, open now in the West Village: same mural, same '70s flag, same floor-to-ceiling windows that will swing open to sidewalk seating on warmer days.
This opening marks Moore's return to the neighborhood—he shuttered the doors to West Village favorite Commerce over two years ago, and has since been running Harold's Meat + Three out of the Arlo Soho. Come by on a cold, rainy, generally dismal November day (not unlike today) to improve your evening with a gin-elderflower-prosecco drink and maybe some braised beef short rib chili. Also on the menu: lobster curry with sweet potato and squash, potato gnocchi bolognese, old-school chicken pot pie. Some hearty fall type stuff if we do say so.
And should you awaken on a forthcoming Saturday with a strong hankering for pecan cinnamon buns and carne asada-stuffed California-style breakfast burritos, know that they're doing brunch here, and those things are very much possibilities.
We've got photos of the space and its consumables to share with you, per
usual always. Find those here.
