Also! Gaelic gastro pub OK'd for Avenue A

Last night's CB3/SLA Licensing Committee meeting seemed longer than usual... by 10 p.m., the group had gotten through four of the 30-plus items on the agenda...

There were a few last-minute scratches, including:

26. Spitzer's Corner (LES Gastro LLC), 101 Rivington St (trans/op) (NYLA Cafe LLC)

However, we did hear the presentation for Percy's Tavern, a "Gaelic gastro pub" that was OK'd to take over the Al Diwan space at 13th Street and Avenue A. The Percy's folks were turned down last month...However, they returned with a stronger concept and better community outreach. The owner, Larry Watson, has lived in the East Village for 25 years, arriving here in 1986 to work as a building super on 11th Street and Second Avenue... We'll have more on Percy's later...
