Ofer sits down with two of the Brooklyn restaurateurs breathing new life into the historic restaurant, Gage & Tollner. The restaurant first opened in Downtown Brooklyn in 1879 and shut its doors in 2004. The 125-year-old Brooklyn institution was known for its landmarked decor and impeccable service. In the 14 years since it closed, Downtown Brooklyn has transformed into a lively neighborhood with tens of thousands of new residents. Husband and wife team Ben Schneider and Chef Sohui Kim along with their business partner, friend, food writer and bar owner St. John Frizell helped put Red Hook and Gowanus on the foodie map. Now, they are reviving Gage & Tollner while preserving its historic charm.
