Graffiti space giving way to Greek restaurant on 10th Street
Graffiti, the acclaimed small-plates (and small) restaurant from chef Jehangir Mehta, has not been open lately on 10th Street between Avenue A and First Avenue.
At first glance, it appeared that some kind of renovation was going on inside the space. In any event there hasn't been any mention of a closure — temporary or permanent — on the restaurant's website or social media properties.
Now there's a Community Board notice stating that an applicant is seeking a new liquor license (beer and wine) for the address...
The applicant is for the Athenian NYC Inc. The applicant's name is Kamal Kouiri, the wine director and general manager of Molyvos, a Greek restaurant on Seventh Avenue in Midtown. The questionnaire isn't online just yet with more details about what to expect here.
And no word on the status of Me and You, Mehta's space for private dining next door...
Mehta's Graffiti Earth remains open in Tribeca.
Graffiti opened in 2007, and drew praise for Mehta's inventive food pairings.

The landlord would not renew the lease.
Kind of rude to be part of the neighborhood for 10 years and then close with not even a note explaining things or thanking the neighborhood. Why do restaurants do this?
Why do restaurants (like Empire Biscuit) do this? Because they're busy “Peelin’ Potatoes.”
