Having persevered through last night’s Community Board 2 meeting, Boozy NYC reports that soon-to-close Café Noir won’t be going after the Bar Martignetti space after all. Instead, the representative of Pera appeared before the board seeking to open a location there as well as at 54 Thompson. Needless to say, it was not easy going. Neighbors also spoke up against the idea of Don’t Tell Mama taking over the original Pink Elephant space, most recently occupied by Manor.
