Jean-Georges's West Village restaurant Perry St. could take months to reopen after taking on a whole lot of Sandy flooding, the Post reports. Located on the ground floor of one of architect Richard Meier's celebrity-friendly towers, the dining room at JGV's restaurant was relatively unscathed but the basement flooded heavily, and the Post floats the rumor that the restaurant's underground grease traps overflowed and worsened the building's damage.
While Meier's buildings undergo the necessary repairs, Jean-Georges himself will be living at The Mark, the Upper East Side building where he has another restaurant. A rep for JGV tells the Post that Perry St. could take two months to reopen, once the damaged equipment and carpet get replaced.
