The New York Times profiled a handful of Red Hook businesses hit hard by Sandy and still aiming for a reopening date. According to the Times, “February has become the target month” for many. Red Hook Lobster Pound is shooting for Valentine’s Day. Home/Made plans to offer brunch this weekend, but has also set its sights on Valentine’s Day for a full-scale reopening. Sunny’s Bar, still badly damaged (along with the owner’s house next door), has no estimate on when they will be back in business. Fortunately, several operations are already up and running: Fort Defiance opened the night before Thanksgiving with a pig roast; The Good Fork restaurant reopened to big crowds on New Year’s Eve; and Baked, Hope and Anchor, and Brooklyn Crab survived the storm relatively unscathed. Finally, the Times reports that Fairway is hoping for a late February opening date, although the grocery store announced yesterday that it will reopen in March. The repairs to the store cost close to $10 million.
