Husband-and-wife team Sarah and Nick Suarez, veterans of beloved NYC/Brooklyn dining institutions such as Marlow & Sons, Romans, Gramercy Tavern, and the Modern, moved to Columbia County not long ago to open Gaskins, their first culinary joint effort in Germantown, New York. The interiors by Brooklyn-based Studio Tack are spare and simple, in keeping with the building’s humble heritage (it was once a five-and-dime and later a grocery store) and the low-key but stealth luxury vibe of Columbia County.
