Take a Look Around JG Melon in the Village, Opening Monday

New, 1 comment

Take a look around the new outpost of the Upper East Side classic.

Here in all its watermelon clad glory is the downtown branch of J.G. Melon, the classic Upper East Side pub famous for its iconic hamburger. The original opened back in 1972 and the Greenwich Village location is the first spinoff. It is a joint venture between Danny Abrams (The Mermaid Inn), Steve Abrams (of Magnolia Bakery) and Shaun Young, who managed the original for over 30 years. The space is a fitting homage to the original with the distinctive red tin ceiling, green gingham tablecloths, and numerous watermelon effigies through out the space. The menu is virtually identical to the uptown one as well, including the burgers, chili, and cottage fries.

J.G. Melon, 89 Macdougal St, New York, New York 10012
