Brownstoner recently reported on renovations being made to accommodate would appeared to be a restaurant in the first floor space at 190 Dean, here in Boerum Hill, although a previous report stated the the building (a two family townhouse), would remain residential according to the DOB.
At the same time a liquor permit notice was taped in the window of the ground floor space.
So whats going on here?
Now we have reports that the owners of the property have applied to Community Board 2 for a liquor license describing plans to open a restaurant featuring Northern Italian cuisine, but the issue was tabled because, according to Emily Nonko at Brownstoner, “there were no signitures of support or floor plans for the establishment.”
This development makes it sound as if the owners are not familiar with the restaurant business or at the very least, of the process of establishing a restaurant.
Meanwhile, residents of the area who have commented on Brownstoner are largely enthusiastic about the project, although several also express concern about the possibility of added noise from increased traffic on this residential block.
Either way, it will likely be quite some time before this property will be open for business. We’ll just wait and see what develops.
