New Cuban/ Brazilian Restaurant L-2 Fuel Opening At 100 Market St.

Thursday, November 6, 2014 - by Gail Perry

Two restaurants and two bars applied for and were issued beer permits by the City Beer Board on Thursday.


. A new Cuban/ Brazilian restaurant L-2 Fuel, is opening at 100 Market St. across the street from the Aquarium. With the capacity of 50, there will be a full bar in addition to the restaurant and will offer outdoor seating.

With a warning that many different forms of ID would be used in the center of the tourist district, the restaurant was given a consumer beer license.

 

Taqueria Antigua Guatemala is changing locations and so was required to re-apply for a permit. The Mexican restaurant with a capacity of just 12, will now be located at 2005 E. Main St. Their permit will also allow carryout sales if containers are sealed.

 

Just One More, 1513 E. 26th St., will be open only four hours a day. The owner does not anticipate having problems with serving minors because he does not expect anyone under the age of 30 to be interested in coming to his bar.

 

A license for this business was approved, as was a beer permit for Legends, 3001 Rossville Blvd. and Save-A-Ton #4, 4004 Rossville Blvd. in the location of the former R.J. Market.
