Did the Green Room Close?

I was logged on to craigslist when I saw an ad advertising a "new casually upscale restaurant looking for all floor staff (annex)"

I clicked in, out of curiosity, and I read that a new casually upscale restaurant is seeking staff and they are to drop of their resumes to 296 Brunswick Ave.

Did the Green Room close? Or did the owners open a new restaurant?

I wasn't a big fan of the GR, but it's been an Annex staple for ages - I just wanted to know if anyone had heard anything.

  1. i have heard that a jazz bar is opening in the not to distance future.

    1. That would make me sad if it's true. I have some very fond memories of the Green Room and their not pad thai pad thai. Not at all like the real thing but I couldn't stop ordering it.

      1. I dropped by and the place was jumping. Doesn't mean it's not going to be sold, but on the other hand, there is something new called the "Live Alex" moving in the spot where the Poor Alex used to be. Possibly that is the place looking for new staff.

        1. It's open. I walked by on Saturday night (on my way to the green room - which is still open so don't worry!) and there was a note on the door that said it was closed for a private function, but would be open for Dinner starting November 30. No menu was posted, but I do look forward to checking it out.

          Anyone have more information on this new place?
