Last night Michael White’s team hit another snag in their plans to expand Osteria Morini to the space next door: Community Board 2 shot down a liquor license alteration app, largely because of heated objection from a handfull of neighbors. Georgette Fleischer gathered 221 signatures in opposition of White’s plans. A source told Grub that eleven board members were in favor of granting the license alteration, but the NIMBY arguments prevailed.
