The latest report from the crew at Governor in Dumbo, which was damaged heavily by several feet of water one month ago, is that the space has been cleaned and sanitized. According to Zagat, the major construction will begin soon, and the restaurant’s equipment still needs to be replaced. In the meantime, chef Brad McDonald is doing a number of pop-ups and guest chef appearances, and the restaurant is still raising funds for rebuilding. McDonald cooked with Justin Bogle at Gilt this week, and will cook in Chicago on December 3. [Zagat, Earlier, Earlier]
