EDGEWATER — m. henrietta, a breakfast, brunch and lunch joint on Granville Avenue, could be transformed into a new bar and restaurant.
The prospective new owners, Chris Bowler and Alan Stoll, are seeking community support for a zoning change needed for a liquor license at 1133 W. Granville Ave.
The duo presented their plans to area block club North Edgewater Beach Association on Tuesday night.
The new restaurant would be called Revival and would feature a modern, rustic feel, according to meeting minutes.
Bowler said in an email that "we cannot comment at this time" about the plans.
To obtain a liquor license at the location, the building's zoning would need to be upgraded.
Dan Luna, chief of staff for Ald. Harry Osterman (48th), said a wider community meeting was planned for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Loyola University security office, 1113 W. Granville Ave., to discuss the proposal.
Luna said a liquor license moratorium on the block would not need to be lifted because it doesn't apply to "incidental" liquor licenses — like what would be needed for a restaurant with a bar serving drinks.
The future of m. henrietta remains uncertain, however.
Co-owner Michael Moorman, who also operates m. henry in Andersonville, didn't not respond to requests for comment.
Moorman and Jorge Aviles opened m. henrietta on Granville in 2010.
