Yesterday both Grub Street and Eater reported that the Red Hook Lobster Pound would reopen this Friday, March 1, after rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy. According to Grub Street, “The Van Brunt Street’s holding tanks were destroyed, most of its inventory spoiled and, in all, the business had assessed more than $100,000 of damage by the time power was turned back on.” The owners pushed back the targeted opening day from Valentine’s Day, and the new opening date coincides with the return of Fairway Market. To start off, the Lobster Pound’s new hours will be from noon to 8 pm Wednesdays through Sundays and until 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Red Hook Winery is also aiming to open its tasting room by March 1, so it’s looking like there will be a big party in Red Hook come Friday!
