Pioneering Williamsburg restaurant DuMont closed for renovations just one week into the New Year, prompting fears within the community that it would not reopen. Owner Kristina Greene, the widow of the DuMont founder Colin Devlin, tells Eater today that the kitchen and garden are getting much-needed upgrades. In the meantime, Greene says she’s no longer involved with sister restaurant DuMont Burger, not that the split was her choice. “Three of the partners at Dumont Burger pushed me out by sending me an email on Christmas Day and then ‘voted’ me out at the first ever shareholder’s meeting held on December 30,” she says.
