J.G. Melon's Younger Brother Is Almost Ready to Mingle With Greenwich Village Burger Nerds

One of the best things about the Upper East Side is finally coming downtown.

Soon, the southwest corner of Bleecker and MacDougal will be home to the second Manhattan location of storied East Side tavern J.G. Melon. This is an area that already has plenty of old, clubby burger taverns, but if the owners nail the decor, the burger, and the cottage fries, this could be a very big hit indeed.  Then big players here are Danny Abrams (The Mermaid Inn), Steve Abrams (Magnolia Bakery), and Shaun Young (a veteran of the uptown original).

No word yet on when it will open, but a peek through the window reveals that the interior is almost done. All they have to do is hang that sign, turn on the griddle, tap the keg, and kick out the jams.
