The friendly neighborhood American restaurant The Grey Dog is seeking a space in Hell’s Kitchen for its sixth outpost.
The all-day cafe and coffee shop has been serving the New York City community since 1996. It is known for serving “simple” new American classics with portions that are “a bit too big” and the music may play “a little too loud,” but “that’s how we like it.” Founders and brothers David Ethan and Peter Adrian debuted the flagship store at 49 Carmine Street in the West Village nearly three decades ago. The duo wanted to bring a no-frills, “small town, simple Americana” coffee shop concept to the city and named it after their dogs Moose and Goose Lane.
The team is seeking the vacant space formerly occupied by Bricco, which closed in 2019. The new outpost is slated to offer 33 tables with 88 seats, as well as two stand-up bars with 22 seats, and anticipated hours of operation of 8 a.m. until midnight daily.
The Grey Dog’s five outposts are located at 55 W 26th Street in Flatiron, 242 W 16th Street in Chelsea, 422 Mulberry Street in Nolita, 90 University Place in Union Square, and 49 Carmine Street in the West Village.
Its menu ranges from all-day breakfast offerings like omelettes and fried chicken and waffles for $17-$18.50 to sandwiches from burgers to baja fish tacos for $15-$17.5-, salads and bowls for $17-$18, sides and soups, as well as a long list of beverages including coffees, teas, sodas, cocktails, beers and wines, and mocktails. It also offers a happy hour special from 3 pm until 7 pm from Monday through Friday and 4 pm until 7 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
