Photos: The damage at Governor by Izzy Grinspan

Governor, the two-starred Dumbo restaurant from the Colonie team, got totally slammed by Hurricane Sandy. Earlier this week, chef Brad McDonald noted that the dining room took on about five feet of water. Now, AvroKo Hospitality and chef Brad Farmerie announce that they will give one hundred percent of the profits from Public and Saxon + Parole this weekend to their friends at Governor, so that they can rebuild.

The team released this statement:

We're feeling very lucky to be able to be open today, after the major devastation caused by hurricane Sandy. Not everybody was so fortunate, and many in our restaurant community have suffered significant damage. This weekend, we are donating all profits from PUBLIC and Saxon + Parole to help in the rebuilding efforts of "Governor" in DUMBO; a restaurant which was hit hard in the storm and is owned and operated by our close friends, Elise, Emilie and Tamer. Others wishing to make a donation can visit
So, if you dine or have drinks at Saxon + Parole or Public this weekend, you will be helping the Governor team rebuild.
