Project Description

The Grey opened in the 1938 Art Deco former Greyhound bus terminal at 109 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., with Chef Mashama Bailey and her Southern-inspired dishes. Owner John Morisano spent more than two years and several million dollars restoring the former bus station into a unique showpiece, and he says he is "humbled that people are aware of us at that level of the industry." New York-based Parts and Labor Design, headed by designers Andrew Cohen and Jeremy Levitt, are credited with the design of The Grey. Morisano says his intention was to maintain the original design aesthetics of the 1930s Greyhound Bus Station but to make the space functional. He wanted it to "look like is has been here always ..." He sees the design as a metaphor for a transportation hub. "You feel like you stepped out of time or place and into some other place and time, so the experience is totally transportative. Effort went into every stick of furniture and light fixture ... so it all made sense. No details were left untouched." The space at The Grey features a main dining room with a bar area for casual dining or for people who "just come for cocktails." The room features elements such as gate numbers on the wall and glass partitions made from salvaged materials. The old ticket booth was transformed into the new kitchen, and the outdoor area features smokers and grills and can host special functions. - Courtesy Bloomberg
