For its first few months in business, Cherche Midi operated rather naked; without its retractable awning. This sprung hope in some that the sidewalk cafe situation from the previous Pulino’s incarnation might not return. Doesn’t seem so. A new pinstriped blue canopy system arrived last week.

It’s official. Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria no longer has any claim to the northwest corner of Bowery and East Houston. The red neon signage was pried from the brick facade yesterday afternoon.

Plywood just returned to the southwest corner of Bowery and East Houston, where Keith McNally is busy readying the replacement of Pulino’s Pizzeria.

Chefs at the helm are Shane McBride (currently executive chef of Balthazar) and Daniel Parilla (currently […]

Eater reported yesterday that McNally is ending the Pulino’s Pizzeria concept at the southwest corner of Bowery and East Houston. The restaurateur announced that he’s closing the spot in January, and reopening as a French […]

The period of vacancy at 77 East Houston, punctuated briefly by a display from the nearby Debut New York, recently concluded with the advent of brown window paper.

Along with EV Grieve, we’ve certainly been keeping tabs on the sidewalk dining situation at Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria. Since the joint opened, tables situated in the Bowery-facing window-doors merely flirted with the concrete, but barely crossed the threshold. That is no longer the case.
