Peace and Love Hospitality Inc., doing business as Destination, 211 Ave A (trans/op)Are they serving American comfort food until within one hour of closing? No. According to the waitress, they close the kitchen nightly at 10:00pm. Here is a picture of their kitchen at around 11:45pm. It was not in operation. Their website also states that they serve food until 10:00pm, so it's not a secret. The secret is that the stipulations imposed by the Community Board not only have no meaning or enforcement, there are NO repercussions. So bar owners know that they can come in, sign anything they are asked to, and they don't have to care after whether they had any intention of abiding by it.
