Less than two months after opening its doors, Greenwich Grille in West Village has closed. The Southern restaurant it replaced, 33 Greenwich, lasted only six months at the 33 Greenwich Ave. space, between Charles and West 10th streets. The same owners at 33 opened Greenwich Grille, bringing in Harold’s Meat + Three chef-owner Harold Moore to revamp the menu.
Moore confirmed via spokesperson that the restaurant closed Wednesday night but did not offer a reason for the closure. “We had a brief but exciting run and want to thank all of our guests and friends for their patronage,” the chef says in a statement. “We hope to see you all soon at Harold’s Meat + Three and look forward to an exciting year ahead.”
In its very brief tenure, Greenwich Grille offered American comfort menu, including a cheeseburger, deviled eggs, and chicken pot pie. Before that, 33 Greenwich was manned by Anne Thornton, a chef who used to work at musician Moby’s popular (but panned) LA restaurant Little Pine.
Moore — an alum of Daniel Boulud and Jean-George Vongerichten restaurants — went solo in the NYC dining scene with his popular West Village restaurant Commerce, which closed in 2015. In 2016, he opened Harold’s Meat + Three with partner Julia Grossman, who also was involved in the short-lived Greenwich Grille.
