The Newest Grey Dog Opens in NoMad, New York
The newest Grey Dog restaurant opens in NoMad (55 West 26th Street, NY, New York). Not only is it the first Grey Dog location that is green certified with a two-star rating from the Green Restaurant Association, it’s Grey Dog’s first establishment to offer cocktails, as well as a full range of local beers and wines.
NoMad locals have already embraced the new restaurant, making it as popular as The Grey Dog’s other strong performing neighborhood locations. Denizens welcome The Greg Dog with its American classics, coffees, and bar offerings. Known for partnering with local suppliers for healthy, hearty, seasonal ingredients, the establishment offers home-style dishes and drinks that are sure to please.
The Grey Dog and Sustainability
Sam McMullen leads Sustainability and Marketing for the Grey Dog and has played a key role in opening the NoMad / Flatiron location. He describes the newest site as “The Grey Dog 2.0.” It exemplifies Grey Dog’s commitment to sustainability (plus, there are cocktails).
Specific requirements must be met for green certification by the Green Restaurant Association – like using LED lights, composting, and a host of other green building and operational actions restaurants can take.
McMullen points out that taken together, these things can make a tremendous impact. He is happy with Grey Dog’s two-star rating and proud to be partnering with the Green Restaurant Association on such important efforts (check out specifics on The Grey Dog – Flatiron in NoMad here.)
The Grey Dog’s Food and Drink
There is a wonderful selection at The Grey Dog. Share something delicious, like Blistered Shishito Peppers, Buffalo Cauliflower, or Friend Brussels Sprouts. The Grey Dog Club, Grilled Cheese, the House Burger, and the Impossible Burger (for those avoiding meat) all satisfy. For those wanting something other than a sandwich or burger, the Four Cheese Mac-n-Cheese or Taco Night (a choice of beef, chicken, or Baja fish) offer tasty options.
If you want drinks, stop in for a refreshing Chilled Oat Milk Chai or Cold Brew. Or warm up with Local Hot Cider or Bushwick Tea. And don’t miss the interesting selection of local beers, wines, and cocktails. A couple of notable bar offerings are the Rock Steady (made with Tito’s, green juice, and soda) and the Scat Daddy (a gin-based cocktail with Campari, Lillet, and kombucha).
The Grey Dog’s History
Brothers Dave Ethan and Pete Adrian opened their first restaurant almost 25 years ago – envisioning, and then creating a neighborhood destination where people would want to be. Now, an eclectic team – from culinary pros, to artists, dancers, musicians, and more – offer that personal vibe you only get from a true neighborhood spot.
Dave and Pete have been intimately involved with the opening of The Grey Dog Flatiron in NoMad – Pete with the design and construction, and Dave with CEO duties and hands-on training.
The intangible, warm and friendly feeling that emanates from The Grey Dog also stems from its principles and ideals. The restaurant aims to source responsibly and makes it a point to partner with farms and other businesses that share its values and put community first.
For all of these reasons, it’s no surprise The Grey Dog has been called “the neighborhood’s best friend.” Plus, it’s named after Dave and Pete’s own dogs, Moose and Goose Lane – two Labrador retrievers, one white and one black. When it comes to simple, wholesome food and hospitality, The Grey Dog in NoMad is definitely “Best in Show.”
Why the Grey Dog Chose NoMad / Flatiron
The Grey Dog chose the NoMad / Flatiron area because it feels like the kind of cozy, homey neighborhood that would respond well to The Grey Dog’s living room vibe and the establishment could bring its nostalgic heritage to the beautiful, historic area. It’s the perfect match.
As the newest Grey Dog restaurant opens in NoMad for outdoor and indoor dining, curbside pickup, and delivery, stop by, say hi, grab a bite or a drink, and stay a while.
