Despite a strong nay vote from the community board, Jack Abramcyk and old Beatrice Inn door guy Simonez Wolf are plowing ahead with plans for Cafe Bambi, reports Bowery Boogie. The pair's going directly to the SLA for a liquor license for the double-decker space just down the street from Fontana's, another multi-story LES bar. There are already 10 licenses within 500 feet, but it's likely the duo will get the sign-off. Condolences to the neighbors. 107 Eldridge Street, Lower East Side
