Like clockwork, residents of the next-door condo came out to protest the restaurant the owners of the Inn at Irving Place are planning to install at Essex and Canal. Also getting shot down by last night’s CB3 licensing committee, according to the Lo-Down: T-Poutine (a French-Canadian chips joint planned for Ludlow Street) and Grand Park (the “Tavern on the Green for the Lower East Side” that former Mo Pitkins owner Jesse Hartman envisions for the former Isabella’s Oven space). Meanwhile, according to Eater, the committee was not happy about the fact that Aces & Eights has turned Hartman’s old Avenue A digs into an apparent douchetination, complete with beer pong.
