From the owners of the Mulberry Project and the Vinatta Project comes a new, similarly named bar-restaurant. The Greenwich Project is housed in a 74-seat townhouse that’s outfitted with pop art — so while this place is certainly upscale, it doesn’t take itself too seriously. If you’re coming here to drink, stay to order food, too. The bar on the ground floor offers small plates, while the upstairs level is a full-fledged restaurant. Chef Carmine Di Giovanni is making dishes like peektyoe crab salad, diver scallops, and lobster cavatelli with ramps and crayfish (ramps! ramps!). Take a look at the menus* and a few of the dishes, ahead.
