Nick Morgenstern will close his three and a half year-old East Village restaurant, Goat Town, on July 4, with plans to reopen it as an entirely new restaurant come fall. Morgenstern is teaming up with chef Bobby Hellen, a vet of Resto and The Cannibal, for the revamp, along with Goat Town's beverage director, Gabriel Richter and service director Emily Schumacher of Jack's Wife Freda. The new restaurant, called GG's, will serve a very different menu than the current New American menu, but will still include ingredients sourced from the restaurant's back garden. A representative tells Eater that Morgenstern hopes the new place will "serve the East Village community in a broader way." GG's is slated to open in September.
Morgenstern is also
planning consulting on a new Chinese restaurant called Mr. Fong's, and just last month opened the LES ice cream hot spot Morgenstern's.
