We had the pleasure of having dinner at The Grocery Restaurant in Carroll Gardens last week, and loved the super drab, olive green and grey coloring of the interior and exterior. It's all very Martha Stewart 1990, or very WPA Project 1930's, or simply European in its tremendous sense of restraint. There was even a raw turnip on our table...

The pumpkins and gourds outside were so non-orange!

Excuse the cell phone pics. The Grocery has very little signage, but the style is distinctively vintage. You can check out the website here: TheGroceryRestaurant.com.

Inside, there are no pictures on any of the walls and the music is so low that you don't even hear it. The color of the walls is similar to the outside color, and the range looks like it comes from a Farrow & Ball collection (example below).
