CB3 Gives Upper East Side Saloon the Nod for Mo Pitkin’s Space


We noted earlier that Shea Gallante of Cru was planning to go for a liquor license at the Sea Salt space at last nights community-board meeting. He didnt end up appearing, and Bullfrog and Baum, the firm that handles publicity for him and for Cru as of this week, wont comment about it. But Zagat Buzz reports that there was another monumental development at last nights meeting: The owners of Upper East Side faux saloon Aces & Eights, who bought the long-vacant Mo Pitkins building for $4 million, were recommended for a liquor license. Kind of incredible given the board's reputation and the uptown locations fratmosphere. Were sure Sasha Petraskes head just exploded.
