One Savannah restaurant helps another recover from fire

Local News

The Grey restaurant in downtown Savannah was packed Monday night with patrons of a midtown favorite: the Green Truck Neighborhood Pub.

The pub is closed for repairs after a kitchen fire so The Grey allowed Green Truck to hold a pop-up burger event.

100 percent of the proceeds will go to Green Truck’s staff members who will be out of work until their restaurant can reopen. 

“When we opened tonight at 5 o’clock, there was a line down the block and it was hard not to just lose it right then and start crying,” said co-owner Whitney Yates, about the turnout. “It was just so fantastic and we feel so supported by Savannah so thank you.”

Yates said progress is being made on the repairs and they hope to reopen by Valentine’s Day.
