Uptown eatery gets liquor license

first_imgWHITTIER – The City Council has reversed itself, granting Steve’s BBQ in Uptown Whittier a permit allowing it to sell hard liquor. The council voted 3-2 on Sept. 13 to deny the request, but Councilwoman Cathy Warner changed her vote Tuesday, to give majority approval to the permit for the restaurant at 7006 Greenleaf Ave. “There were three areas we need to focus on: public safety, concentration of liquor licenses (in the Uptown area) and noise,” she said. “There was new information on these three issues and that’s what persuaded me to change my vote.” Warner was the only council member to change her vote. Mayor Greg Nordbak and Councilman Doug Lopez again voted in favor of approving the permit. Councilmen Bob Henderson and Owen Newcomer again voted against it. Warner said one key change for her was when the council revoked a permit allowing Rome Fine Dining to sell alcoholic beverages. It is located across the street from Steve’s BBQ. “In regard to public safety, (Rome Fine Dining) no longer has the same crowd and there are the same issues there were before. It also doesn’t have a liquor license and that means there’s one less,” she said. Warner also said that Steve Hernandez, owner of Steve’s BBQ, also will take measures to reduce noise. Henderson said he isn’t satisfied because he still has concerns about noise and about how the restaurant became a “hang-out” for a motorcycle gang. “We should proceed very cautiously,” he said. “I think Mr. Hernandez is on the right track. If he does clean the situation up and put in security measures, I have no problem with him coming back in a few months and making another application. “We’ve got to be very cautious in not getting back to the Noa Noa (a former restaurant-bar) and Ibiza situation where it becomes primarily a bar,” he said. Nordbak said the city has imposed 63 restrictive conditions on the restaurant. “We should give this man an opportunity to be a good neighbor and a good citizen and allow him to expand his business,” he said. But Henderson said that it isn’t easy to revoke a conditional-use permit because it usually means going to court. Steve’s BBQ, which has been in existence for four years, has a permit to sell wine and beer. The owner now will be the fourth in Uptown Whittier to have a permit to sell hard liquor. Before his permit will go into effect, the Police Department must approve a security plan, an interior noise meter to alert management when the decibels exceed 95 (as high as an ambulance siren) and weather stripping over the doors. mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
