In other abandoned curbside dining news, the DOT also served notice (on Nov. 27) to the currently closed Cloister Cafe on Ninth Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue... (thanks to EVG reader Craig Sloane for these photos...)
back in August.
As for the future of outdoor dining, Curbed noted earlier this fall:
The improvisational process that birthed streeteries is over, and the government is approaching a consensus on how to make them permanent. While those rules are still being written, a few outcomes seem likely. Rickety plywood sheds will come down — eventually; it could take a while — and be replaced in many cases by more up-to-code structures. And New York will continue to allow restaurants to commandeer an astounding amount of public pavement.
