Keith McNally didnt exactly breeze through last nights Community Board 2 meeting. According to Eater, fourteen nay-saying neighbors turned out to oppose his efforts to McNallify a former paper store and turn it into a Pulinos Caf, a smaller outpost of Pulinos. McNally addressed concerns about noise and crowding by (among other things) agreeing to give his home phone number out (fine, now how about that AAA-level reservation line at Minetta?), but he declined to completely enclose the space. Chances of the community blocking this one: thinner than the crust of a Nate Appleman pie.
