A quick look at a LoopNet listing about Greystone Steak & Seafood at Cambridge Market might lead you to believe the new restaurant is for sale.
“Yeah, you wanna buy it?” jokes restaurateur John Arnold.
It’s actually the building that’s for sale – NOT the business.
“The landlord is just trying to liquidate it,” Arnold says. “It doesn’t have anything to do with us.”
He says whoever buys the building must accept the lease.
Greystone opened in the center at the southeast corner of 21st and Webb Road this summer.
The restaurant is in 5,000 square feet that has been transformed from when Famous Dave’s Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que was there.
Greystone’s main dining room holds about 50, but there are also four rooms for private meetings and parties.
“We’re doing really good,” Arnold says.
He says the party rooms are booked regularly, and the open seating is usually full for dinner by 7:30 p.m.
Arnold says he plans to be at the building for a long time to come.
“We can’t afford $2 million, or I’d buy it.”
