Restaurant news: Grayz to become Gneiss, Kunz is out
The owners of small-plate restaurant/lounge Grayz announced today that they will reopen in 2009 as Gneiss (pronounced nice). Chef Gray Kunz will no longer be associated with the restaurant.
Chef Martin Brock, who served as the executive chef of Grayz since its opening in September 2007, will be executive chef of the Gneiss.
The restaurant located in a landmarked townhouse on West 54th Street will serve the current Grayz menu through the end of the year, and will open with a new concept in January.
