PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A sit-down Mediterranean restaurant is set to open in Prospect Heights this spring, its owners said, bringing a new eatery to Underhill Avenue.
The Underhill Cafe & Grill at 760 Dean St. will open in late spring with a 35-seat dining room, Mediterranean menu and beer and wine license according to an application submitted to the local community board this week.
Brooklyn Community Board 8 approved the liquor license application on Thursday night, giving the go-ahead to the owners of Underhill Cafe for the restaurant, which will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m., the plan said.
The restaurant has been in the works for several years, but was tabled a year and a half ago because the architect on the project passed away, the board and owner said.
Renovations at the new eatery at the corner of Underhill Avenue and Dean Street began again a few months ago, the owner said; new signs and awnings went up on the building this fall.
The State Liquor Authority will make a final determination about the restaurant’s beer and wine license application before alcohol can be served at the location. CB8 voted to approve the application with 25 yes votes, four abstentions and one no.
