It may take up to three months for the Fairway supermarket in Red Hook to reopen, DNAinfo reports, but when it does it’ll have a brand-new second-floor restaurant. In 2005, Fairway’s owners announced the 52,000-square-foot grocery store would eventually have an in-store restaurant featuring views of the Statue of Liberty and a menu by chef Mitchel London, but the project was delayed. “It’s something that had been talked about, but now that we have work to do,” a spokesman tells DNAinfo. “It makes sense.” The supermarket was hit with fifteen-foot waves and flooded with five feet of water during last week’s storm, leading to temporary closure and a massive cleanup, which included disposal of all of the store’s contents.
