Grey Lady Opening this Weekend at 77 Delancey

For about a month, 77 Delancey has been letting it all hang out. No brown paper to cover these corner windows during build-out. What remained of White Slab Palace is history, including the notorious elk head which injured a patron back in 2009. And all the cracked glass panes have been replaced.

We’ve watched the Grey Lady slowly evolve from plywood pig-stye to nearly operational. Most of the interior accoutrements arrived within the last week. Staff informed us that the New England-style raw bar, which will reportedly serve “seafood privately sourced from Maine,”  is slated to open this weekend. Liquor license is active, according to the SLA website.
