Today I finally got an ETA for the opening of Grill & Greens (formerly known as Bagels On The Run). If everything goes to plan north Greenpoint will be swimming in shawarma starting this upcoming Monday, May 3rd!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Gyros On The Run?

Some of you might recall that last July I wrote that Bagels on the Run, which is located at 994 Manhattan Avenue, was going Middle Eastern. Well, it is finally happening! Charles (who also brought us today’s delightful image of the King of Kings being carted down Green Street) writes:

Went by Bagel on the Run today, saw they were demoing it. I asked one of the guys there what was going in, and he said Mediterranean, gyros, shwarma, salad, etc. I’ll miss the bagel egg and cheese, but am excited about that!

You and me both!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Middle Eastern Coming To Greenpoint?

I was getting my usual falafel at the falafel cart on Milton and Manhattan today and telling the woman I was disappointed that there isn’t a place in Greenpoint to go at night (the cart is only there until around 6ish) for Middle Eastern. She told me someone was opening a place near Christina’s and has been delayed because of a permit needed. This was interesting news and I wanted to pass it along, I recall a convo where some of us were saying we’d like to see a Middle Eastern place open locally. Although hopefully people will still support her cart during the day!

Well, I did a little poking around the Department of Buildings web site and…


SHE IS RIGHT ON ALL COUNTS! As the above screencap (from the application to install kitchen fixtures) clearly indicate, this is slated to be a Middle Eastern restaurant! In addition, 849 Manhattan Avenue was cited a couple of months ago for work without a permit. When will they get their paperwork straightened out? I do not know— but this is very welcome news nonetheless!

Which brings me to why I kicked off this post with an image of Bagels On The Run: they have started selling gyros and plan to add shawarma and falafel to their menu soon. Will the wonders ever cease?
