We’ve been holding off on telling you about Greensquare (née Greenmarket) Tavern, which opened in the old Schaffer City space earlier this month, because the restaurant initially ran into a bit of a name snafu. After being open one week, the restaurant received a call from Grow NYC, who owns the “Greenmarket” trademark. Now the eatery is newly rechristened Greensquare Tavern, and you can check out its seasonal-produce-driven menus from chef John Marsh, featuring fare like sausage, lentil, and cannelloni stew, and pan-seared Peking duck breast with red rice and Swiss chard, with an emphasis on sustainable meats and local produce. This evening, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the restaurant has a special of house-brined Pineland Ranch corned beef and organic cabbage with creamer potatoes, along with fresh-baked Irish soda bread; wash that down with a choice of two organic beers. Full menus below.
