Westville is looking to grow again, this time in the Financial District. The casual American mini-chain now boasts four locations in Manhattan, and according to a liquor license application, co-owner Jay Strauss may want to open at 110 Wall Street, too. Strauss confirmed to Eater that the application for a restaurant and patio liquor license is for Westville. He won't know if it's a sure thing for another month, but he's eyeing the space.
The restaurant's expanded steadily since it first opened in 2003, with outposts in the East Village, Chelsea, and Hudson Square. It also recently announced that it would be opening its first location in Brooklyn, in a 2,500-square-foot space in Dumbo. Westville serves classic American food like cobb salads, grilled chicken, and grilled cheese sandwiches, and is also a popular spot with the brunch set. Strauss also co-owns Concord Hill, a seasonal restaurant in Williamsburg.
