A Battle Cry For Cipriani

New, 3 comments

2008_08_cip.jpgToday the Cuozz pens an entreaty to the SLA to let the Ciprianis keep their liquor license and remain "inextricably woven into the fabric of New York City life". The critic asserts there is no love lost between him and the family (he once called the 'Public Enemy No. 1') however, "It would...cost more than 1,000 jobs, leave our most iconic celebration spaces empty for the foreseeable future, and knock the fizz out of the city's culture of excess - the golden goose that keeps the talent-fleeing, jobs-hemorrhaging 'Empire State' afloat."
