Housed in a former glassworks factory from the mid-19th Century, this NYC restaurant and event space, with its brick walls and cobblestone floors, gives guests a nostalgic wonder to dine, drink, and dance inside.
Wedding, banquet, reception, and fundraiser guests are in for a special treat with the cuisine that's cooked up and served by professionals that value history and ancestry as much as they do good taste. Fresh ingredients blend and bounce together in contemporary dishes inspired by Mediterranean roots and Middle Eastern flavors, always honoring the integrity of any plant or animal used.
The Lowdown Venue Setting
ABOUT Glasserie is located in the former home of Greenpoint Glass Works. The building was erected in 1860 by Christian Dorflinger, an immigrant from Alsace, to house his expanding Glass Factory. The operation included kilns, docking facilities on Newtown Creek, and a production line. The factory itself also included housing for the employees in its wings. This cut glass was so highly regarded that special pieces were requested for the White House collection. In 1882 the factory came into the possession of the Elliot P. Gleason Manufacturing Co, and in 1902 was renamed The Gleason-Tiebout Glass Co. Gleason-Tiebout operated out of the building for years, employing around 300 people. The prints throughout the restaurant are from original glass fixture catalogues (kept safe by the Corning Glass Museum). We are told that divers in Newtown Creek have found some of these original glass fixtures. Gleason-Tiebout continued operations in the building until 1946 when it moved across Newtown Creek to Queens. OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY Glasserie believes in good food. We do our best to find the freshest and most superior product from as close to us as possible. We then manipulate the product as little as possible to achieve the desired result and still honor the integrity of the plant or animal in its original form. We value old recipes from our grandmothers and great grand mothers and bring them to our neighborhood in an approachable way. Our roots are in the Mediterranean and focus is on Middle Eastern flavors and culture mixed in with contemporary techniques.
