Chef Blake Joyal comes from Hundred Acres, Craft, and the Modern, and will apply a similar Greenmarket-seasonal emphasis to the southern-influenced American cuisine here. He assures: “Fish is sourced from a variety of local and reputable fishmongers, and the meats come from well-known organic farmers.” The wine is organic and biodynamic. Check out the menus below and you’ll see, among other things, fried blowfish tails, also a recent special at Goods. A new Williamsburg trend?
