Oliver Stumm got his way at 14 Spring Street after a protracted battle. Strongly disliked by many in the community for his Cafe Select hot-spot, the nightlife maven was still able to score a liquor license transfer from Barmarche. This despite an initial denial by Community Board 2 in May 2012; the applicant returned six months later and was approved with strict stipulations. The state delivered the green light for the OP earlier this month.

Rintintin is Stumm’s latest venture in the environs of Little Italy, one that will apparently serve a Mediterranean menu. And it just opened this weekend after months of renovations and such.

As a refresher, CB2 fashioned the following stipulations for Stumm to operate Rintintin. Let’s see if they have teeth…

  • The hours of operation will be Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and Monday to Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.
  • All doors and windows will be closed by 9:00 p.m. every day.
  • There will be no customer use in the basement.
  • Operator will maintain a full service restaurant only.
  • There will be no d.j., no promoted events, no scheduled performances or cover fees, no velvet ropes, no movable barriers and there will be no TVs.
  • Posted notices for customers to respect residents and to be quiet.

In the meantime, Oliver Stumm also has approval to move forward with a new venture a few blocks south at the old Happy Ending space on Broome.
