The Story of Grey Dog

This journey started on a quiet West Village street called Carmine where two brothers, Dave & Pete, without any business experience or even any kind of real plan, decided to open a restaurant. Their mission was simple - create a place where people would want to be. A pair of artists full of spirit and creativity, they used their little shop on 33 Carmine St. as their canvas. They named it after their dogs, Moose & Goose Lane.

Today, the Grey Dog has four neighborhood locations in Manhattan and still serves simple, wholesome American food, great coffee, beer & wine. It's home to a team of artists, musicians, culinary pros, dancers and students who's pleasure is to serve you. The music is probably just a little too loud and the portions may be a little too big but that’s how we like it. 


Our Food

We dish out a mix of new American classics with something for everyone. We do healthy & we do hearty with an eye on local & seasonal when we can. The idea has always been to serve homestyle simple, delicious & wholesome food that warms your heart.

We aim to source responsibly and have partnered with farms & businesses that share our values of putting people and community first.

Our People

This is a home for dreamers & doers. Looking out for each other helps us grow together to serve our guests and our community in a real way.

Our Community

The Grey Dog has been the neighborhood’s best friend since 1996. It's a welcoming and inclusive second-home hangout that has always been a social center for the community. This community has always supported us, and we want to give back.
