By a vote of 27-5, according to Shawn Chittle who was at the meeting. (Another reader said it was 25-7.)
Meanwhile, what's next for the former Mo Pitkin's space? The CB3/SLA committee voted down a similar proposal from Todd Patrick and company in March.
There is always that rumored (and effective scare tactic) fast-food joint. And fast food has been mentioned coming here if operators couldn't secure a liquor license. The building is for sale. (A commenter claims there is a draft lease on the table for a Subway here. )
Last June, EV Italian eatery guru Frank Prisinzano said that the landlord of the former Graceland space on Avenue A and Second Street had four prospective tenants: Frank's fast-food Italian joint, a bank, a 7-Eleven and a bank.
CB3 rejected his plans for Raguboy last June. The space at Avenue A and Second Street remains vacant.
Is it better vacant than a restaurant or bar?
