The rumor du jour about EMM Group's Bowery restaurant The General and its adjacent nightclub Finale is that the whole thing might turn into a Duane Reade. Bowery Boogie hears as much today from an unnamed source, and it's not the first time such a rumor has circulated. However, a rep for the EMM Group tells Eater that there is absolutely no truth to these pharmacy whispers.
Still, keep an eye on this space. Let's not forget that co-owner Mark Birnbaum told the SLA that the complex "has been a disaster for us." He and the group's other owners were forced to fork over $25,000 in fines earlier this year.
