    Tutt Cafe does a great job at having sidewalk seating and keeping it resident friendly. I think Iris would need a good awning.

    Really?? Really guys? Is this truly an issue? Guess what.. It’s not.
    Schools are an issue. Poverty is an issue. Crime is an issue. Outdoor seating???? Good lord.

    I saw recently (on Brownstoner?) that Iris Cafe on Columbia Place wants to add dinner service. I think I’m in favor, but I wonder how folks in the Riverside Houses would view it. Don’t know if Iris would want outdoor seating.

    Subtle nit: Mojito Cuban is at 82 Washington Avenue. 82 Washington Street would be in a nook under the BQE.

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM….. A nook under the BQE. SEXY

    All in favor of sidewalk seating PROVIDED it doesn’t impede pedestrian traffic as it sometimes does when exceeds space allotted for this purpose.

    I am not opposed to sidewalk “cafe” seating if there is room, as with many Montague Street restaurants, but Clark’s at 80 Clark Street? Is there really room there?

  • Crementia Murrs

    Sidewalk seating? Heavens! Can’t they at least put some chairs out there?

  • Eddy de Lectron

    Lori, The “sidewalk seating” at Clark’s is in the semi-permanent addition attached to the Henry street side of the building.

    Tb, may I call you “Consumption”? No one said it’s an earth-shattering issue, but outdoor seating is an issue to those of us who like to eat outdoors in the Heights this time of year. What do poverty, crime and schools have to do with this post? There are other threads for those issues. Good lord!
