The new restaurant will close at midnight, Friday through Sunday, and at 11 p.m. the rest of the week. Alcohol will stop being served one hour before closing, according to the agreement approved by planning commissioners. The restaurant is prohibited from operating as a bar or banquet hall, and it cannot offer "night club activities."
