Manousheh Readies New Grand Street Restaurant
Manousheh, the popular Lebanese eatery of Greenwich Village, is nearing the finish line for its first expansion. The new restaurant at 403 Grand Street, in the shadow of Seward Park Co-op.
The former 7-Eleven space, owned by the co-op and managed by Charles H. Greenthal, is transformed into a large, open layout eatery. Four tables are also set out front. But nothing is happening, apparently, until Con Edison gives the final go-ahead.
Manousheh signed a lease for the vacated space one year ago. It’s a vendor veteran of area markets like Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg, and specializes in its namesake breakfast dish, sweet and savory flatbreads. The restaurant cemented itself in 2015 with the brick-and-mortar eatery at 193 Bleecker Street.
