Yesterday, we learned that restaurateur Gabe Stulman put a final nail in the coffin of his grocery-inside-a-restaurant idea he had going at his West Village restaurant Jeffrey's. And the thing is, he is not the first to put this concept out to pasture. It happened at a former restaurant of his, Market Table, but also across town at Northern Spy Food Co. and others throughout the years. Perhaps the lesson is this: there are grocery stores and there are restaurants (and then there's Eataly).
The exceptions to the trend can be found, where else, in Brooklyn, and come in the form of Marlow & Sons—located in an area of South Williamsburg that is not exactly brimming with grocery store competition—and adorable Cobble Hill newcomer Brucie.
