Grey Lady, an adorable restaurant/bar on the Lower East Side, is a casual Nantucket hangout lifted by its foundation and carefully placed in downtown NYC. A cool, beach-y spot, it’s a good place for boozy brunch, large groups, small bites, casual dates, first dates, cheap drinks, girls’ dinners, group brunch, lunch and (beautiful) people watching.
Good For Groups: The design makes this place feel super spacious and with clusters of tables mingling with cozy couch seating arrangements and a giant bar, Grey Lady is a good bet for large groups looking for any kind of night (or day) out.
Good For Small Bites: The menu is made up of beach classics like lobster rolls and offers some great smaller dishes to share including a pretty decent cheese plate. Plus, the wine list, beer selection and cocktails pair perfectly. Bonus – it’s all pretty affordable.
Good For Girls’ Dinners: Aside from the fact that it won’t hurt your wallet, Grey Lady is a magnet for east coast surfer guys (including the owners). Spend a few nights at the bar getting to know the awesome staff and you’ll be hooked up here in no time, meaning a big group of your girlfriends will want to visit often for a night of eye candy and vino.
Good For People Watching: The restaurant turns open air once the weather warms up, providing an unobstructed view of the hipsters swerving through the L.E.S. in search of their next cheap drink.
