Greenport Grub – Greenport Restaurant Scene, Fall 2020
Posted On 11/03/2020
There is a lot going on within the Greenport Village restaurant scene this month. Catch up on all the Greenport restaurant news for fall 2020…..
The Village said goodbye to Emilio’s this week. The Main Street pizzeria served its last slice on November 1 after 15 years in operation. As we reported in 2018, an LLC headed by Matt Michel of 1943 Pizza and Brix and Rye now own the property. Matt plans to move his eatery from its current location at Stirling Square a few hundred yards north to the Emilio’s site. Expect major renovations to the property first.
Basso wine bar is looking to re-open at 407 Main Street (in the former Gallery M space) after obtaining necessary approvals. The popular wine bar was formerly located in Stirling Square. Basso briefly reappeared at the Main Street site last winter before code violations and Covid forced them to shut down.
Demarchelier Bar and Restaurant is now open at 471 Main Street (Next door to to Stirling Sake and across from Clarke’s Garden). Plans to open the new restaurant earlier his year were waylaid by the Covid crisis. Instead, the owners took over restaurant operations at The Menhaden Hotel for the summer. For four decades, the Demarchelier family ran a popular French Bistro of the same name on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
It is that time of year when local restaurants begin closing for the season. As of this week, Porto Bello, Jennie’s at Drossos, Claudio’s and Fortino’s Tavern are all closed until the warmer weather returns.
