Nicholas Morgenstern: Leaping Around the Dining Room Like A Gazelle


Since opening last summer, Nicholas Morgenstern’s The General Greene (229 Dekalb Avenue) has quickly become a neighborhood mainstay. With its NBC small plates and recent expansion to weekday breakfast and lunch, it continues to cement its place at the center of Ft. Greene’s growing restaurant scene. We recently caught up with Morgenstern and asked him our Four Questions Not About Food.
