INWOOD — Dyckman Street is about to get more sushi.

Popular restaurant MamaSushi got the green light from Manhattan's Community Board 12 to renew its liquor license and add an outdoor cafe with seven tables and 15 chairs in its expanded space at 237 Dyckman Street.

The board gave its approval on the resolution for both applications during its full board meeting Tuesday night.

The approval was contingent on MamaSushi co-owner Victor Santos, who also co-owns neighboring restaurants Papasito and Mamajuana, agreeing to close the outdoor cafe at 10 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on weekends.

Santos was not immediately available for comment on the approval.

MamaSushi's application for the expanded sidewalk cafe and liquor license are pending approval from the Department of Consumer Affairs and the State Liquor Authority since community boards serve only in an advisory capacity.
