BY GABE HERMAN | A man stole cash from three restaurants in the Village, all early on the morning on Sat., June 22, according to police.

The first incident was at the seafood restaurant Upholstery Store: Food and Wine, at 715 Washington St., between Perry and W. 11th Sts. Around 3:45 a.m., the man entered the eatery by forcing open a front window. He took about $30 in cash from an envelope next to the register, then fled.

Then around 5 a.m., the same man allegedly struck at Italian restaurant Rosemary’s, at 18 Greenwich Ave., at W. 10th St. The burglar forced open a patio door and took about $40 in cash from an envelope in the manager’s office.
