The restaurant at 2 Unity Alley has been in the Neighborhood Dining Group (NDG) portfolio since 2006, but today NDG president David Howard announced that the owners are selling the building. McCrady’s Tavern will shutter at the end of the month.

Intimate tasting menu restaurant McCrady’s will remain open on East Bay Street, while McCrady’s Tavern will serve its last caviar-and-tater-tot combo on July 31. Minero is not affected by the sale either.

The building at 2 Unity Alley has had quite the history: from McCrady’s under now-Greenville chef Michael Kramer to a molecular gastronomy playground for Sean Brock to a gilded-age-themed McCrady’s Tavern to a new American spot under Orlando Pagán.

Howard says that even though NDG tried to come up with a winning formula for an establishment at 2 Unity Alley, it never quite succeeded how they expected. After 13 years, Howard says, “I’ve put enough time into that, and I’m excited about our next project.”

The next NDG project will be seafood eatery Delaney Oyster House at 115 Calhoun Street, opening this summer.
