Helmed by Noma and Per Se alum Bradford McDonald, Brooklyn's Governor restaurant showcases fresh, simple ingredients alongside creative culinary techniques, making the menu simultaneously familiar and progressive. Since opening in July, Governor has seen a meteoritic rise to hottest-table-in-town status, following a glowing review from the New York Times, among many others.
Sadly, all that momentum changed on October 29, when Hurricane Sandy delivered four feet of water into Governor's kitchen. Now, they're doing everything they can to get back on their feet. Momofuku and Eleven Madison Park have already hosted fundraisers. With some help from Kitchit, the Governor team is taking their show on the road, popping up in Chicago and San Francisco to spread awareness and raise funds to rebuild.
