Stop-Work Order Slows Vinegar Hill House’s Progress

The devil wears permits.

Hopefully the evil chains and city notices are just a small inconvenience that the Vinegar Hill House caf, Hillside, will soon overcome, because everyone (including, probably, Alan Richman!) has been waiting for Sam Buffa and Jean Adamson's next-door offshoot since spring. The caf, perched on the corner of Hudson Avenue and Water Street, is meant to have around twenty seats and serve light food, wine, and beer more of a daytime hang than Vinegar Hill House proper. But for now, a taste of bureaucracy.
