A word from Greenwich Project
Greenwich Project is located at 47 West 8th Street between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street. The intimate and chic 74-seat townhouse offers two experiences under one roof, allowing diners to frequent Greenwich Project for any occasion. Greenwich Project offers a robust menu of Contemporary American dishes with appetizers like the “Odd Couple,” with sweetbreads, wild burgundy snails, bacon, roasted garlic and Fideo Squid Ink with head on prawn and pimenton aioli. Guests can enjoy entrees like the Halibut “En Croute,” with brioche, cauliflower and blood orange grenobloise and the Roasted Rack of Colorado Lamb with chickpea, eggplant chutney, orange and cumin. Downstairs, the warm brick-walled room features a sleek white bar with burnt-orange colored banquets and a rotating roster of artwork. The upstairs level houses plush and cozy coffee-colored banquets, well-spaced tables, low-lit chandeliers and white-washed brick add to the room’s exclusive feel.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I have been several times and the staff always surpasses my expectations. Joe and Stacey make you feel as though you're in your own home. Favorites are currently east side cocktail, burata, gnocci and the fennel branzino. also don't miss the Elvis dessert! Go early as they tend to run out of food items (only flaw)"

  • "food was good; though, we found something small and hard in the scallop dish. tuna tartare was delicious. highly recco. incredibly noisy as tables are very, very close together. biggest upset was the service. we all have our pet peeves when it comes to dining out and mine is bringing the check to the table before it is asked for, which is what happened. i understand people want to leave work, but it would have been better handled by saying, "we're closing out, do you mind if i bring you the check" instead of just delivering it with a "thank you." after that we felt rushed and unwelcomed."

  • "It was loud and the food was not flavorful. It initially seemed appealing and eclectic on the menu but in taste, the eggs were not completely cooked."

  • "Came here for brunch. The food and ambiance was good; however, they don't make any substitutions on their menu which seems odd considering so many people in NYC have dietary restrictions / different tastes. My friend simply wanted to swap out goat cheese in her omelette for another type of cheese and they told us this could not be done. It's being made from scratch so we weren't sure what the problem was but they wouldn't do it. This soured my dining companions enjoyment of her meal. I had the poached eggs over pork belly hash - nothing spectacular. However, we did enjoy the ambiance and the fresh fruit juice mocktails."

  • "The loudest restaurant at which I have dined! It was impossible to have a conversation. I couldn't wait to leave, so couldn't enjoy my fish, which was well prepared. Also, it was much too warm in the dining room. Even my 29 year old son could't wait to get out of there."

  • "Loved everything about the Greenwich Project. Food was delicious, service was perfect, reservations were allowed and honored on time. No NY attitude just an amazing experience, I am so happy I chose this restaurant for a special brunch with friends and family."

  • "I host a monthly networking brunch and I'm always looking for a new, affordable spot. We're artists, so we can't afford Sarabeth's EVERY time. This spot was perfect! We were able to seat 10 at a long table. Pre-fixe was only $25, but the entrees were so inexpensive, you could have gotten away with less. Food was unique and delicious (and I'm a very picky eater). And it was easy to book the group last minute, which was a fantastic plus. What a find!"

  • "We had a brunch here on Saturday. I expected it to be very crowded but it wasn't too busy. The place is quite spacey. We didn't sit upstairs which I actually wanted to but first floor sitting was also nice. The atmosphere of the place was cozy almost like somebody's really nice brown stone house which I think it is a perfect brunch spot. I had a french toast and it was the best french toast I've ever had. Plating was cute and wonderful as well. I also had a freshly squeezed fruit/veg juice which I loved! Overall, it was a perfect brunch experience as I expected. Plus, after the brunch here, we walked to Washington Square Park and enjoyed the beautiful day!"

  • "Fantastic food. Started out with some delicious oysters, crisp and fresh, nice added kick from the house made chipolte sauce. The odd coupe, sweet breads and bacon made for the perfect balance of flavors and richness. While my girlfriend couldn't stop talking about the branzino and the cocktails, over and over. I guess she loved it as much as I did."

  • "We dined at Greenwich Project for my friend's birthday. The oysters were so fresh and delicious, the scallops, lamb and branzino, all perfection! The dessert was wonderful and accompanied by a birthday song- the entire dining room even chimed in! The restaurant is elegant yet approachable, and the food is truly outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful experience, can't wait to be back!"

  • "My husband, daughter and I went to Greenwich Project to celebrate my husband's birthday. Fabulous! Champagne to toast, Pisco sours and crispy light tap beer. We started out with the PEI oysters in a delicious light sauce, kept dunking the bread into the sauce to get every bit left in the bowl. Duck confit, licked the plate clean. Five minute egg, amazing! Chicken "under the brick", cooked perfectly (not dry as chicken often is) with a delicious dark sauce on a bed of sweet pea puree, a hit! Cavatelli, perfect. Branzino, honestly the best seafood dish I've ever had. The service was great, attentive but not overly. The ambiance comfortable and beautiful. The whole experience was really lovely. Five star restaurant without the pretentiousness."

  • "We were a group of 9 and sat upstairs. Our group was two couple and our young adult children. Our waitress' name was "Stacey" but after some discussion with her at the end of dinner, her real name was "Wonderful". She was truly that and so was the food. We all had such a great time and here it is 2 days later, and we are all still talking about the special truffle oil-infused risotto, the tuna tartare, the brick-pressed chicken and the various pastas. All delicious and all "wonderful". We will be back!"

  • "love this place, dinned with a large group of friends, which all of them are foodies, .....whatever! so no worries I made a reservation and to their surprise after looking up the chef they had high expectations and Greenwich Project delivered on all counts. The cavatelli pasta with corn was delicious, also a special for the evening duck/avocado toast first i was skeptical but being that I have dinned here before and everything has always been amazing I figured why not! Others in my group were relived then menu was straight forward with bold flavors and no fussing around with catchy names and being cute... simple, tasty food with great service ....btw this 5 minute egg thing they do is not even on the menu but the best thing ever!"

  • "We went for Father's Day brunch and it was delicious! The space itself is terrific in its design. Clean and great touches of art and texture. The only complaint was the very aggressive bus boy who was rather like a bull in a china shop. But the waitress was terrific, food was yum, and I've already made a reservation to go back for dinner."

  • "Had Father's Day brunch here with my hubby and two young children, ages 3 and 5. Food was superb (pork belly hash and french toast!) and service was excellent. Our server knew to take the kids' orders first and was also very nice to them. The space is very inviting and bright. I like the decor. Overall, a great neighborhood restaurant. I will go back for dinner next time."

  • "The first time I went to this restaurant was the last year and I was very happy to go again with a friend who was visiting the city. Our surprise, (not in the good way) it was a private event in all the first floor and the people of this group wasn't very nice and they were very loud. I was disappointed and we didn't enjoy our dinner as it should be. The next time I really prefer that the hostess, explain that it is a private event so I could booked in other place and go to this restaurant in other time. Now I don't think I will come back for a while. Thanks."

  • "If you are looking for a spot that will make your wallet feel good and yet looks way to cool to be that affordable, then go to Greenwich Project. My friend and I both got the $25 set brunch menu and loved it. Granted the portions are a little small so do not go here if you are really craving a big hearty brunch. But the restaurant is beautiful and feels very swanky, but the restaurant and its staff was very approachable. The service was so good it was almost annoying. No, really, they would not stop checking on us, and they kept filling up our cups of coffee so much that we had to stop them because we were jittery by the end of it. I would MUCH rather have it this way than have no service at all. I will definitely be going back. "

  • "Beautiful design, bright white subway tile, black and white photos; charming, and sophisticated. They were very gracious to our group of 8, welcoming us to sit at our table while we were still waiting for others to arrive. Service was very friendly, although they were obviously training someone new and during the rush around 1:30 became somewhat hectic (we arrived at 12). The host and manager were ever present making sure things were running smoothly, attending to tables, and greeting people. I recommend their omelet, so fluffy on the inside! The lemon ricotta pancakes though were not as zesty and moist as I expected. Extra bonus: their liquor menu; excellent selection of whiskeys, Definitely coming back for drinks in the evening! "

  • "Came in and immediately greeted by Clyde as an old friend (first time dining there). Never write reviews but had a few free seconds to write, so I thought I'd take a minute and say what a delightful addition this is to the neighborhood. 8th Street isn't exactly the epicenter of culinary excellence, so this was a wonderful surprise Had the tuna tartare (delicious and whimsically intermingled with some kind of tapioca crisp - very nice) and the brick chicken (excellent - moist and very flavorful). Only drawback is the NOISE LEVEL. Very active bar scene downstairs. Thought at first we would be seated there. Then escorted upstairs (very nice room) where it was even LOUDER. Definitely not for low talkers!!"

  • "Dining room is well decorated and a lively, fun scene. However, the drinks were literally the shortest pour I have ever seen. The service was also very slow. I ordered the pork chop and it was WAY overdone and dry. My wife got the gnocchi, which was ok. Burratta appetizer was also nondescript. Would not go back."

The decor of the restaurant is one of a kind, the waitstaff was fabulous and the food, exceptionally delicious! Our brunch was five star hands down! I highly recommend the Greenwich project and we will be visiting this jem of a restaurant again soon! "

  • "Sweet looking from the outside, which does a good job of bringing in traffic. They will have to significantly work on the food though, if they want to keep the crowds. We had simple standard brunch - omelette and eggs benny, and both were mediocre at best. We waited 15 mins for luke warm tea and coffee, then another 5 for milk to go with it, after asking twice. With so many great brunch alternatives close by, I wouldn't go back."

  • "I think the restaurant is still in its formative "project" stage. The food is good but not intriguing or unique. Cocktails bode well for them with the incorporation of fresh pressed juices. Could be better dessert options as well. The decor of the restaurant was comforting and charming. "

  • "The space is gorgeous. The ambiance was truly delightful, the scene is classy without being pretentious. The cocktail list is exquisite and unique, while the classics are made just right. The food is absolutely delicious. The scallops were by far the best I've ever tasted- perfectly cooked, accompanied by truffle and vanilla flavors. The tuna was so fresh and delicious, too! Dessert was amazing. The donuts are out of this world, and the banana creme brûlée is light yet rich, so good! We really enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back! "

  • "I recently celebrated my birthday at Greenwich for brunch, and it was absolutely perfect! The beignets were out of this world; fresh and hot with the perfect balance of crispy and soft, rolled in mouth-watering sugar and spice. I had the cornflake-crusted French toast with berries, easily the most outstanding French toast I've EVER had! Others in my party had the eggs benedict, the steak sandwich, and pork belly hash, all equal in exceptional flavor and presentation. With the “set menu” ($25.00 pp) we all enjoyed expert-crafted brunch cocktails, from garden bloody Marys/Marias, to la maquina verde, each more delicious than the next. It was a wonderful and special experience from start to finish!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We went for Saturday brunch and in general the food was good but not amazing. I wouldn't recommend the cornflake crusted french toast (it seemed to have been deep fried in cornflake crumbs), but the eggs benedict and pork belly dishes eaten by my companions seemed good (though the pork belly dish was a bit watery). The small-sized fresh juice was priced at $8 which seemed overpriced for NYC brunches and particularly overpriced for the area. The food dish prices seemed comparable to other NYC brunches though. The ambience is well done - a mix of classy and contemporary - and the service was good. I was also able to make a reservation which is rare these days for brunches. Overall it was fine to try once but I don't think I'll go back."
