Karl Dines at Governor, Sees E.T. at BBP’s ‘Movies With A View’

July 6, 2012

Mr. J. tries the fare at Governor, the latest dining venue by the folks who brought us Colonie and Gran Electrica. The food at Governor, located at 15 Main Street in DUMBO, elicited a new adjective, SOOO-perb! Afterwards, Mr. J. took the short walk to Pier 1 to catch the opening of this summer’s SyFy Movies With a View series, E.T. (The Extra-Terrestrial). Video after the jump.

New York Times Gives Mexican Gran Electrica A Taste Test

May 26, 2012

Gran Electrica, the Mexican restaurant that opened in March at Five Front Street on the DUMBO border, gets the full treatment in a New York Times review. Mind you, our own BHB Karl Junkersfeld has already weighed in. His verdict: “Delicioso.”

The Times’ Robin Finn remarks that the restaurant “is a brick-walled, votive-lighted, tin-ceilinged amalgam of the sustainably local and the whimsically loco. The mescal beverage options promise to knock your Birkenstocks off, as does the back garden, where the Brooklyn Bridge curves overhead like a distant awning.”
