Grey Dog Carmine Street, the sandwich and coffee shop that opened in 1996 and eventually spawned locations in Chelsea, Greenwich Village, and (soon) Nolita, closed after service yesterday. In June, the owners said they were in danger of closing becuase the landlord claimed they owed him $100,000 in fees, something they contested. At the time they wrote, "Should we be forced to leave it will break our hearts a hundred times over."
Fans and Michigan sandwich lovers whose hearts are also breaking can go pay their respects at a "funeral" the shop is having on Wednesday night. The Mulberry Street location will open the public on October 21.
