Denny’s wins battle to serve liquor at FiDi restaurant

Community Board 1 vote frees restaurant chain to serve alcohol at its first NYC outpost

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.

Denny’s held an information session earlier this month with Tribeca residents in a bid to calm concerns over its planned move to the neighborhood in May. [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
