Per our report yesterday, hundreds of NYU students lined Avenue A and 10th Street. Police arrived and issued summonses to the bar/restaurant. You can read all that here.
Yesterday, residents received a flyer from Diablo Royale apologizing for the event. (Click to enlarge.)
In part, it reads:
"We were trying to ingratiate ourselves with our NYU neighbors by holding a supposed intimate gathering for a section of the graduate Department as part of a welcome back/orientation.
Unfortunately, our contact duped us, and not only did he invite one specific graduate section from NYU, but other sections as well, hence a supposed party of 75 morphed into something much greater."
"We pride ourselves on being a restaurant that caters to a mature audience, and by no means has our paradigm shifted."
This was just the second communication that nearby residents said that they ever received from the establishment. The first arrived upon their opening in May, in which Diablo Royale Este is described as a "neighborhood friendly, family establishment."
Meanwhile, after four months, several residents said that they are still waiting to find this "neighborhood friendly, family establishment."
