Graham Elliot Closes Connecticut Restaurant After Six Months In

New, 2 comments

After six months in business, Graham Elliot's Greenwich, CT restaurant is shuttered. Primary's (former) manager told Patch that "the issue being, it wasn't busy. The investors, the landlord pulled the trigger."

Elliot issued a statement saying the concept "ultimately did not transfer to the Greenwich market. (The owners) eventually decided to take the space into a different direction; one Merlin (Verrier) and I didn't feel was the right fit for the Graham Elliot brand."

Elliot now has one restaurant—Graham Elliot Bistro on Randolph Street. He closed two restaurants last year—his flagship Graham Elliot and the sandwich spot Grahamwich.

He also says in the statement that "I'm back in Chicago, taking time to focus on Graham Elliot Bistro, as well as Lollapalooza, training for the Chicago Marathon and writing my first cookbook."
