It seems almost too fitting that power is finally starting to come back to lower Manhattan after this long, trying week. And yet that’s what seems to be happening today as Friday draws to a close. (And yes, “Friday Night Lights” has already been claimed by one of New York’s own.) After four days of otherwise dismal news, it’s a hopeful note, and we hope that we can come back on Monday with lots of new restaurant reopenings and menu changes to report. Until then, here are some of the best chef and restaurant reactions to the returning power.
