Frank Bruni reports
today that EU is on!
The E.U., a restaurant in the East Village, was mentioned in those same previews.
It too hasn’t opened. One of its owners, Bob Giraldi, told me yesterday
that it would be unveiled in early April.
The E.U. has been engaged in a protracted battle for a liquor license and
by the state authority last week. Mr. Giraldi said he was weighing his options
and would open without a license if he has no other choice.
(Um, my link to Eater, not Frank’s. He might have a blog, but he doesn’t seem
to have learned how to link out, yet.)
This is possibly fantastic news for those of us in the neighborhood. We get
what should be a great new restaurant, in a lovely-looking space, which reportedly
cost over $1 million to build out; and we get to bring our own wine,
paying retail rather than restaurant prices!
