‘Greens and Grains’ Health Spot Surprises at Former Boss Tweed’s on Essex Street

Posted on: August 13th, 2018 at 5:02 am by

Boss Tweed’s Saloon is not returning to Essex Street, as reported. Instead, a replacement is not only here, but almost ready to go.

Large-print marquee signage installed this month announces Greens and Grains, an untested new health-conscious eatery focusing on “nutritious bowls.” No liquor is served here (at least not yet), and the license associated with the address is currently listed as “inactive.”

Build-out remains ongoing inside 115 Essex Street with opening likely in the next couple weeks.

You’ll recall that the rebooted version of Boss Tweed’s shuttered in controversy exactly one year ago, five months after resuming operations at 115 Essex Street. The closure owed itself in large part to a 20-year-old Jersey girl who passed out in the bathroom after a night of drinking and was locked inside until morning. That incident, and the factor of underage drinking, was enough for the authorities to raid the joint in a multiagency sting several days later.

The bar was hit with some two dozen various violations and never recovered. The aforementioned missteps ultimately resulted in a $15,000 fine levied in April, plus an additional $10,000 civil penalty.

Ancient history at this point, though…
