The piecemeal reveal of Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria continues.  Although the nearly two-year-old sidewalk shed was finally removed from 282-284 Bowery a couple weeks ago, plastic tarps remained in place to block any clear view of the interior.  Even this close to opening, the foreman appears to be running a tight ship, so as not to leak unofficial photos.  However, as of this past weekend, some of the window obstructions were removed, revealing a money shot of the new restaurant.

The inside bears a stark resemblance to McNally’s other popular Lower East Side spot, Schiller’s.  Defining features include checkered floors, tiled building supports, and the arched rear oven.  When we passed by last night, tables and cast-iron chairs were scattered rather haphazardly.
