A sommelier at French restaurant La Grenouille is lucky he didn’t get his eye shot out by a trio of BB gun wielding muggers on the Upper East Side. The Post reports that 34-year-old Eric Delcros was walking on East 81st Street and York Avenue around 12:45 a.m. on June 2nd [it was actually July 2nd] when three teens pointed their pellet guns at the professional oenophile and relieved him of his iPhone, wallet and $160. Delcros tells the Post, "I don't say nothing, ever. You don't want to provoke them." Cops later rounded up two of the li'l gangstas on robbery charges.
