Last week the Brooklyn Paper reported that some members of Community Board 1, which oversees Williamsburg and Greenpoint, were going to try to get the city to enforce a law that prohibits outdoor seating at eateries before noon on Sunday, in part because the seating can block sidewalk space used by church-goers. Today, the New York Post reports that Lokal Mediterranean Bistro, on Lorimer, was given a citation yesterday for having outdoor seating before noon: “‘They are killing business and killing people’s jobs,’ griped Gino Kutluca, owner of Lokal Mediterranean Bistro at Lorimer and Nassau streets, which received the summons. Kutluca’s business had specifically been criticized by local community-board members for serving tables on the sidewalk — thus making it hard for people to walk past them to get to church — early in the day. The eatery owner will now have to show up in court June 11 to find out what the fine is.” The article doesn’t detail exactly when Lokal’s outdoor tables had been set out, so we don’t have a full picture of what the Post’s headline refers to as the “brunch punch to eatery.”
