Greenpoint Coffeehouse to close & be replaced by sports bar just as it gets good
In the past several weeks, I've been to Greenpoint Coffeehouse four or five times--it underwent a big improvement under the chefship of Jonny Meyer, formerly of TBD. So imagine my dismay when I found out that last night was its final night of dinner service. Having lost its lease, the owner is now converting it into yet another crappy sports bar.
really disappointing. I'm glad to hear that Meyer & some other kitchen staff are going to River Barrel--so I'm expecting RB's menu and food to improve over the next few months. But after having been in Greenpoint for so long--and having recently gotten to be a place I visit regularly--it's too bad that the Greenpoint Coffeehouse is done.
