Although a very dramatic pot bust happened in the basement below Neighburrito at 127 Rivington Street last night — and a tipster claimed to have seen the restaurant’s owner being handcuffed, hopes for the Best Burrito Ever were dashed when Neighburrito’s lawyer wrote Eater to say: "While the police did understandably question my client, he was released and no charges were ever filed. It is my understanding that the police did in fact arrest and charge the actual operator of the facility."
Sorry, stoners. At least High Times is still based in New York City, and that cookbook will be out soon.
