Last week, rumors had Ryan Skeen out at Resto. He’s gone, and now consulting at the General Greene, an American restaurant opening tomorrow in Fort Greene. Skeen is returning the favor his buddy Nick Morgenstern did when the former was starting Resto; now that Morgenstern has his own project, Skeen will provide backup. The two men are looking to make the General Greene a neighborhood staple for what they are calling “high-quality American comfort foods” and “classic-minded cocktails.” At the very least, the desserts are bound to be great; Morgenstern is one of the most talented pastry chefs in town.
