The developers of a proposed Denny’s in the Financial District received unanimous backing from Community Board 1 for a liquor license — despite mounting opposition from residents.
When the breakfast-themed restaurant opens in May, the bar will open at 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. on the weekends – and close at midnight every night of the week, DNAinfo reported. Denny’s initially requested to open the bar at 8 a.m. Some residents expressed concerns that the neighborhood’s new addition would be overrun with college students.
Denny’s decided to proceed with plans for its first restaurant in the city after settling a $10 million lawsuit from an angry condominium board in December. The condo board of the landmarked 24-story building at 150 Nassau Street filed suit in June to block the restaurant chain from operating at the site’s commercial space, as The Real Deal reported.
