Thursday night’s Community Board 2 meeting turned into an episode of “Vex and the City,” reports The Post’s Kirsten Fleming, when many West Village residents passionately opposed a garden expansion at restaurant Fedora on West Fourth Street.
But owner Gabe Stulman — who also owns Bar Sardine and Joseph Leonard — had some A-list support on his side.
Sarah Jessica Parker stepped up to the microphone to offer a ringing endorsement of Stulman’s operations.
“My name is Sarah Jessica Parker. I am a longtime, 28-year resident of the West Village. My husband was born and raised in the West Village,” the “Sex and the City” star said while reading from her phone. The neighborhood resident touted Fedora’s food and drink and called the team “responsible, respectful and hospitable.”
“I am just here to personally support their efforts to continue to grow their business and to be good neighbors and be thoughtful and considerate and listen to everyone.”
On the other side, opponents included French novelist Marc Levy — who penned “Just Like Heaven,” which was turned into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo.
