GOWANUS — A restaurant serving "vibrant" Asian flavors — including a Caesar salad made with chrysanthemum leaves — will open Wednesday night in the spot that was previously 2 Duck Goose.
Owner Kay Ch'ien of 2 Duck Goose has relaunched the space at 400 Fourth Ave. (at Sixth Street) as Hey Hey Canteen.
The new establishment is a more laid-back version of the former restaurant and will serve "contemporary Asian comfort food in a fast-casual setting," a spokeswoman said.

2 Duck Goose closed in November 2015 after a little more than a year in business.
