At Last Night’s CB 3 Meeting, Denial Was Not a River in Egypt


Eater has a summary of last night’s seven-hour-long Community Board 3 SLA & DCA Committee Meeting. Apparently, the board was not in an exceedingly generous mood, issuing denials to a proposed karaoke hall on Orchard Street, a new bistro in the old Le Pere Pinard space, and the St. Marks Ramen Setagaya outpost, among others. The biggest stink of the night was caused by a renewal application for Heathers Bar, which has a long history of problems with its East 13th Street neighbors; somewhat mercifully, the board decided to hold off on the vote.
