Grey Dog owners plan “funeral” for Village location after landlord dispute forces closure

The owners of the Greenwich Village restaurant the Grey Dog are
planning a “funeral” tomorrow at 33 Carmine Street, their original
location of 15 years, after they were forced to close this past
weekend because of a dispute with their landlord, DNAinfo reported. After the
“funeral,” the mourners will march to the Grey Dog’s newest location
at 246 Mulberry Street in Soho, which opens Friday, for an
“after-life party.”

Co-owner Peter Adrian told DNAinfo that the landlord claimed that Adrian and
his co-owner and brother David Ethan owe him $100,000 in fees, even
though that money was never included in their lease.

“[The landlord] claimed that he had made an oversight on our lease and
informed us that he was intending to collect property taxes
retroactive to the beginning of the term,” the brothers wrote in a
message on their website. The landlord, Sarsen Realty, declined to
comment.

Adrian said there was a 1 percent chance the restaurant could reopen
in the same location. “We have an offer out on the table to the
landlord [for a rent increase], which is for market value, the same as
what he could get from a new tenant,” he said.
