Trouble-Plagued E.U. Loses Lunch, Cuts Hours

New, 4 comments

Sweet, sweet EU. It's never been easy has it? First the place was plagued by community board opposition, being forced to open without a liquor license (or even a BYOB policy due to frequent visits by the NYPD). Early on, star chef Anne Burrell left the space, and just last summer owner Jason Hennings gave the ax to chef Justin Sumille. Now the latest, per their answering machine:

"Through the month of January we will serve dinner Wednesday through Thursday 6 p.m. - 11p.m., Friday and Saturday 6 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. The bar is open until 2 a.m. on the weekends. We are also open for brunch, Saturday and Sunday 11 - 4."
We don't have to tell you that closing for dinner on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday as well as cutting lunch service altogether is a bit crushing for the gastropub. Perhaps they'll be up and running full speed come February.
