The grocery store-as-restaurant has been popping up as a trend.

Court Street Market in Brooklyn... Jeffrey's Grocery in the West Village.

Fairmount Grocery is coming to 19th Street and Fairmount Avenue this fall.

It will take the first floor of developer Daniel Greenberg's new four-story building - now under construction on a lot on the northeast corner - that will include 15 apartments.

Greenberg has cinched chef Chad Williams - a former longtime Jose Garces righthand man (Amada, Chifa, his early Iron Chef appearances) - to handle the food.

Greenberg says he's tapping into a "strong demand" for a neighborhood grocery store.

Fairmount Grocery will sell fresh, locally sourced foods as well as prepared foods. There will be a barista station, a demo kitchen, and 30 seats for dining with a potential for 30 more outside.
