The city has been on a rampage of late, closing down businesses right and left for various building-code violations. Happily, most of those closures are temporary. Jimmy Carbone, the titular owner of Jimmy’s No. 43, says that his two-and-a-half-week nightmare is over: “We’re opening tonight. Everything is squared away: We have the letter from the city, and we did everything we needed to.” Meanwhile, across town, Employees Only partner Jay Kosmas assures us that his place, closed yesterday by the Department of Buildings, will reopen tomorrow night: “There were issues they had that have been completely resolved. We just need to speak to a judge. It’s no problem; we’ll be open by tomorrow.” We hope so: Those judges have a way of making you sit there reading magazines until they’re ready for you. Just ask Jimmy Carbone. He thought he would be closed only a couple of days, too.
