WEST VILLAGE — A new "Southern-inspired" restaurant is coming to Greenwich Avenue.

The as-yet-unnamed eatery comes by way of proprietor Danny Volk, owner of the Upsider on 53rd Street and 2nd Avenue and a former partner with the management company behind Meatpacking hot spot Catch.

Volk said the menu would feature "flavors from places like Louisiana, Kentucky, anywhere in the South," and that dishes would include staples like fried chicken and mac and cheese.

The eatery is replacing Irish gastropub Chapter One, and will seat 89 people, including a few seats at the bar.

Volk promised neighbors at a local community board meeting that he would soundproof better than the prior tenants.

"I could literally overhear a couple breaking up in my bathroom," one neighbor told him.

Volk promised that his goal "is not to fix the issues once they happen ... It's to be preventive."

Volk said he could not yet discuss the restaurant's chef.

The restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to midnight, and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., with the full menu available until closing.

Volk said he aims to open in September.
