City Council committee recommends liquor license changes for Aurora restaurants – Chicago Tribune
An Aurora City Council committee has recommended liquor license changes for restaurants in the city.
Aldermen on the Public Health, Safety and Transportation Committee recommended the changes for three different kinds of restaurants. The council as a Committee of the Whole will consider them at Tuesday’s meeting.
A new Class B license, which is a full-service bar for on-premise consumption, would be for the Nawabi Hyderabad House, 4448 E. New York St., in the Pacifica Square mall on the far East Side.
The restaurant has been in business for six years, according to its owner, and he owns two others, in Schaumburg and Buffalo Grove, which he has had for two years.
He wants to add a full bar to his Aurora location. The restaurant serves South Indian food.
Another new Class B license proposed is the Black Pepper Lounge, a new full-service Indian cuisine restaurant going into the former Patelli’s Restaurant location in the Butterfield Plaza at 1515 Butterfield Road on the far East Side.
This is the first restaurant for the owners, officials said.
Aldermen also recommended a Class C license for the Orchard Valley Golf Course, owned by the Fox Valley Park District and managed by Troon Golf.
The restaurant and banquet facility at the golf course has been around for a while, but the license needs to be updated because of an updated agreement with Troon, said Jennifer Stallings, city clerk.
Jeff Palmquist, Fox Valley Park District director of planning, told aldermen the new management and a new menu at the restaurant is “a commitment by the board to establish this as a top-flight restaurant.”
He said the restaurant will do fewer banquets and focus more on the day-to-day restaurant operation. The new menu features more sourcing from local providers, such as the Wurst Kitchen in Aurora.
Aldermen also recommended a Class A, package liquor only, license for Sunshine Pantry, at 2958 Ogden Ave. on the far east side. The pantry needed a new license due to an ownership change, although the new owners are keeping the Sunshine Pantry name.
