Governor Hit Hard by Storm

The scene at the restaurant last night.

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]
