Back in July, we reported that Nick Morgenstern had taken the space that briefly housed Seymour Burton and Butcher Bay, and planned to open Goat Town there in the fall. Now Diners Journal hears the opening date is December 1. Morgenstern has sold his share of General Greene (which raises the question: Is it still New Brooklyn Cuisine if its being done in the East Village?) and is partnering with Joel Hough, a former Cookshop chef de cuisine, on a menu thats fairly straightforward American, with a raw bar, and dishes like Vermont veal meatballs, seared Block Island swordfish, and braised Flying Pigs Farm pork shoulder. Heres hoping they can finally make the space work.
