EaterWire Red Hook Edition: Lillie's Rides Again Kinda-Sorta, More on 360

REDHOOK—Lillie's, long-shuttered Red Hook devotee staple, will see the light of day again with, per Langfield, a new name TBD. Neil Ganic, he of Petite Crevette fame, is taking over the space. But, is this good or bad? Good: "My girlfriend and i were having dinner at Petite Crevette on Monday, and the owner, Neil Ganic, told us that he had recently acquired Lillie's, and had plans to turn it into a jazz club and restaurant. he said he hopes to open in 3-4 months. if it's as good as Petite Crevette, and Ganic's old restaurant La Bouillabaisse in Brooklyn Heights, then Red Hook is in for a treat. Bad: "Lillie’s, a true classic Red Hook bar, will be reopened by Neil Ganic. King of Brooklyn douche bag chefs. Let’s orchestrate the pre-opening take down." [EaterWire Inbox; Amy Langfield]

REDHOOK—As we mentioned briefly yesterday, one of the first restaurants to put Red Hook on the dining map, 360, has closed for an unspecified length of time. Amy Landfield has the story: "The 360 restaurant has had its shutter down. If you call, the message says they're closed as of May 23, "for repair and maintenance until further notice." I walked by the Saturday prior and they were completely packed." Though summer closures are not uncommon, we do hope this doesn't turn into a Montrachet-type business. [Amy Langfield]

BONUS NON-MANHATTAN, NON-RED HOOK WIRE: As has been widely reported, Galapagos will move from its trail-blazing location in Williamsburg to Dumbo next year. Their new digs: a 102-year-old, 10,000-square-foot former horse stable at 16 Main Street. [NYT, Gothamist; Every Blogger and His Mother]
