Grey Lady Has Taken a Piece of the Lower East Side to New Aspen Location

A popular Lower East Side raw bar is expanding to Aspen.

Ryan Chadwick is not new to the Aspen scene. A veteran, some might say. The Maine native lived there at one point for seven years, and created a nightclub called Escobar four years ago. We now learn that a Grey Lady spinoff is underway, one that is apparently “loosely based” on the New York location at 77 Delancey Street.

“We found a great location in the center of town and I thought Grey Lady would be a perfect fit,” Chadwick told us recently. He expounded that “a ton of Italian and French restaurants but nothing like the Grey Lady menu.” Offerings include lobster roll, bluefish pâtés and scallops and bacon. Now, at this point you’re probably wondering about the source of the lobster in a landlocked state. Well, Chadwick’s uncle is apparently a lobster man in Maine and is tasked with sending care packages “direct from the docks.”
