SLA May Revoke EMM Group’s Liquor License at Finale

The state will decide.

Operations at Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm's restaurant-and-nightlife complex at 199 Bowery have been the subject of liquor-license-related scrutiny, a lawsuit, and more than one epic community-board smackdown in its relatively short life on the Lower East Side, and now things look grim in particular for Finale. Bowery Boogie notes that the State Liquor Authority "recently began the proceeding" to cancel or revoke its on-premise liquor license; the EMM partners have until Monday to formally respond to ten infractions logged between February and September of this year.
