After witnessing a great deal of measuring outside of Pulino's over the weekend, Eater learns that Keith McNally's Bowery newcomer is planning a little al fresco seating action. As unattractive as that traffic clogged Bowery intersection may be, McNally knows that if he builds it, they will come. Keep an eye out for those blue police barricades later this week.
Also coming later this week: a review from Sifton. Sources at the restaurant confirm the photographer spotted there last week was indeed from the Times, meaning in all likelihood, Pulino's is Sifton's next target. Note, she opened for dinner a mere six weeks ago.
