[East 4th Street's E.U., snapped by Kalina during its short-lived spring opening]
Score a victory, however small, for fans of alcohol in the East Village and Lower East Side. Long-denied restaurants E.U. and The Orchard will, as of next month, get to pour it on—beer and wine at E.U., and the full liquor array at The Orchard. Notes Eater, "As the duo broke through community opposition with months of careful cajoling, not to mention, you know, serving good food, there's no sense at Eater HQ that the Drying of NYC is even close to over." Indeed so, mes amis.
