The owner of Blondie's Pizza and Rasputin's Music, wants to open a restaurant on Telegraph Avenue. The new place would have a seating capacity of 150 and would serve salads, pizza, and pasta.
Ken Sarachen's plans also call for serving beer and wine until 1 a.m. It will be called Biondi's Cafe.
Here's the finding from the Zoning Adjustments Board, which held a public hearing on the cafe last week:
"...under the circumstances of the particular case existing at the time at which the application is granted, will not be detrimental to the health, safety, peace, morals, comfort, or general welfare of persons residing or working in the area or neighborhood of such proposed use or be detrimental or injurious to property and improvements of the adjacent properties, the surrounding area or neighborhood, or to the general welfare of the City..."
