What a boob! Brazen blonde takes off her shirt at New York City restaurant… and gets thrown out even though it’s LEGAL

The titillating display took place at Verso Restaurant in Alphabet City Sunday night, when the unidentified blond patron sat down to a meal and immediately removed her shirt, exposing her breasts in a crowded dining room.
Her male companion who was sitting across from her pulled out a camera and proceeded to snap pictures of the X-rated stunt.
Verso’s owner, Labinot Baraliu, rushed over the table and demanded that the half-naked woman put her clothes back on.
In response, the bare-breasted blond insisted that it was ‘perfectly legal’ to go topless in the restaurant.
‘In 15 years [in the restaurant business] I’ve seen all kinds of things, but not this,’ Baraliu explained to the East Village blog EV Grieve. ‘It was funny, but at the same time I was like “WTF — is this really happening?”‘
After exchanging a few words with the owner, the libertine couple were escorted out of the bistro.
In May, the New York City Police Department released an official memo cited by The New York Times informing all police officers that it is not illegal for women to walk around the city shirtless, and that they should not be cited for public lewdness or indecent exposure.
The order given to the city’s 34,000 cops stems from a 1992 New York State Court of Appeals, which states that baring one’s chest in public is legal for a woman as it is for a man.
However, because a restaurant like Verso is a private property, its patrons are subject to whatever rules the business has in place.
MailOnline reached out to Verso twice on Tuesday, but no one at the eatery was available for comment.
