December 29 is the final day for Pulino’s, which means it’s probably best to head in today or early tomorrow to pay any last respects to the three-year-old Bowery pizzeria. As mentioned earlier, Keith McNally plans to open a French restaurant called Cherche Midi, with Balthazar’s Shane McBride in the kitchen, come March of 2014. In other McNally news, the last days of Pastis as we know it are also upon us: The restaurateur updated the construction-related closing details with the labor department yesterday; the meatpacking-district restaurant will close January 31.
