Grisette Now Opening In 3119 E Marshall St Space

According to some news around the web HERE Grisette has opted to not open in their original space. Instead, they’ll be moving to the new retail space at 3119 E Marshall across from where Blue Wheeler used to be (now Alewife).

If you remember they were originally slated to open in a renovated 200-year-old storefront at 401 N. 27th St. However, due to construction delays, they opted for a newer space that is ready to go. We here at CHPN have been speculating for quite some time who would fill the space at 3119 E Marshall which has been vacant since construction (at least a year ago).

Grisette will be run by Megan and Donnie Glass (seen below) and they do not have a projected opening date yet.

You can read more about this new food spot in our previous article below:

The gay grisette, whose fingers touch
love’s thousand chords so well;
The dark Italian, loving much,
but more than one can tell;
And England’s fair-haired, blue-eyed dame,
who binds her brow with pearls;–
Ye who have seen them, can they shame
our own sweet Yankee girls?

Interesting that the press release was a bit vague about their keeping a lease or not for the historic 401 (Wills Grocery Store) building. I caught that too but I don’t see how it would be financially feasible to maintain both leases and, the uncertainty about the future of 401 N 27th. It has remained a shell for the past 14-years and has load bearing wall structural issues besides cosmetic ones. There were 2 permits issued, one for the barricade fence and another for light renovation valued at only $1,000. You can barely buy paint for that so what kind of structural shoring or, buildout can you do with $1k? They tried to skirt getting building permits while doing work before, and not just on this location, but there have been a couple false starts in the past and one wonders if the owner(s) of the building really want to do anything with it? Think it is about time the city steps in to start spot blight abatement proceedings.

@Eric – curious thing is, the upstairs apartment above the store may actually be rented / lived in. I called a
Some time ago when it had a for lease sign, but passed when I found out the apartment had baseboard heat and read a little bit more about the building. Anyway, I’ve noticed lights on in the upstairs windows on a few occasions, as recently as last week. Seems pretty strange since the downstairs was (is?) condemned while the upstairs was for lease.
