Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Owner Nicholas Morgenstern (proprietor of the General Greene in Ft. Greene) is aiming for an "elevated everyday American bistro experience" with Goat Town , his recently opened East Village restaurant. For the design, Morgenstern called on Evan and Oliver Haslegrave of Home , the Brooklyn-based design firm behind Manhattan Inn and Paulie Gee's, among other dining establishments. The brothers created an instantly aged environment using reclaimed industrial pieces; they also tiled the banquettes in glossy white subway tiles, which adds a glimmer to the dining room during evening hours. For more information, go to Goat Town . Above: The name Goat Town references Washington Irving's name for Manhattan (Gotham, an Anglo-Saxon word meaning "goat town").
