Restaurant Visit: Goat Town in New York

December 16, 2011

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.
