Here’s a short that was debuted online today by the Tribeca Film Festival regarding Punjabi Deli, the endangered Lower East Side institution. The restaurant has been suffering for several years due to the never-ending East Houston Street construction project. Supporters will be going before Community Board 3’s transportation committee tomorrow night in their campaign to win city approval for a taxi stand in front of Punjabi. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at University Settlement, 273 Bowery. #SAVEPUNJABIDELI” is a short directed by Adeel Ahmed.
