From the CB3 Files: Luke's Lobster Starting Delivery This Week; the Gays Want Cosmos at South Brooklyn Pizza
Starting this week, Luke's crab roll will be delivered to your door.
endless slog Community Board 3 SLA & DCA Licensing Committee Meeting was incredibly long yet not particularly eventful, despite an epic showdown and "kangaroo court" catcalls. But there is some good news to report: Luke's Lobster, whose owners were approved for a license to sell bottles of Maine microbrews, will be starting delivery this week.
In other beer and food pairings news, Lina Kulchinsky, the owner of Sigmund Pretzel, appeared to apply for a beer and wine license to start serving beer and pretzel pairings, as well as spiced wine. She's also planning to start breakfast service sometime soon. Due to a lack of signatures from her immediate neighbors in support of her application, the board asked her to come back next month with more signatures and a letter of approval from the block association; the application was withdrawn.
As we earlier reported, Carroll Garden's South Brooklyn Pizza is coming to 122 First Avenue. Back in Brooklyn, the pizzeria is well-known for Fondle, its Monday night gay dance party, and its owner, Jim McGown, and managing partner, Ruben Alban, want to make the East Village location similarly gay-friendly.
And that's why they want a full liquor instead of mere beer and wine license: "We have to go with the gay community," McGown said. "They don't like beer and wine; they want Cosmos."
