No objections to new eatery’s transferred liquor license

The current owners of Sabby’s Lounge are looking to pursue a slightly different type of restaurant in the city, they said at a recent City Council meeting.
Tony Miserendino was in front of council Dec. 17 as part of the Tamara Group, looking for its approval to transfer a liquor license from escrow to a new restaurant they plan to open where Huck’s Blind Fish was located at 23018 Greater Mack Ave.
“We are in the process of construction now, of remodeling,” Miserendino said.
He said the venue will be a casual steak and seafood restaurant, and that they have hired an executive chef from the MGM.
They hope to open in about two months, he said.
City Attorney Robert Ihrie said changes made by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission to streamline the process no longer required City Council approval for liquor-license transfers, but local governing bodies could still register objections with the commission, if there were any. Approval is still required for new liquor licenses in the city, he said.
But council members had no objections to the license transfer and unanimously approved the request.
“We’re glad to see you in a couple of months and hopefully to dine there,” said Mayor Kip Walby.
