Protesters smash window of famed NYC eatery Carbone

Unruly protesters smashed a window at the famed Greenwich Village eatery Carbone on Thursday night — leaving one diner with minor injuries, police and sources said.

Police said they are now investigating the vandalism to the outdoor dining structure of the Italian-American hot spot that occurred as a group of demonstrators marched by at about 8:15 p.m.

One woman seated at an outdoor table suffered a cut to her shoulder, police and sources said. She refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

The woman was among a party of about 8 diners who were still at the table about two hours later as workers quickly replaced the shattered window with a new one.

Restaurant staff declined to comment on the vandalism, but the NYPD condemned it.

“Businesses throughout NYC are still recovering from the past year, purposely causing damage to their business is not helping any cause,” the department said in a statement posted to Twitter.
