It’s fantastic to see restaurants reopening today, but there’s still plenty of damage to sort out, too. One of the worst-hit spots: Governor in Dumbo. Chef Brad McDonald tells Bon Appétit, “It’s quite devastating as we took on about 5ft of water. Imagine 3ft high in the kitchen, 5 ft in the bar. I was inside as the water was rising and it was like looking inside a fish tank with the water so high up on the windows. We’re sorting out what we can do, but I think we were one of the worst hit restos in the city. We’re flying below the radar until we can figure things out.” [BA]
