Big Pink owner wants to meet the neighbors
Several residents have pointed out that the proprietor looking to secure a liquor license for the former Company Bar and Grill space on East 10th Street is looking to meet his potential new neighbors.
The applicant, Avi Burnbaum, has listed two different time blocks to meet at the Bean on First Avenue and East Ninth Street ... and if these don't work, he'll make arrangements for another time.
As we've previously pointed out, paperwork filed ahead of Monday's CB3/SLA committee meeting includes an extensive "good neighbor plan" to show how Big Pink will work to keep things quiet outside the establishment.
It's noteworthy because we can't recall an applicant in recent years going to such lengths to talk with residents before a CB3/SLA meeting. (Read more about the plans for the space here.)
The CB3/SLA meeting is Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Board 3 Office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
