Last night, Community Board 3’s SLA committee gave a green light to plans for a new liquor license at Nevada Smith’s upcoming expansion on Third Avenue between 12th and 13th Streets. But, because of concerns about noise and general late-night drunkenness, the committee imposed a few stipulations: a 2 a.m. closing on weeknights and 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, increased security and cleanup detail, and a requirement that owner Patrick McCarthy meet with residents monthly to address potential complaints. Nevertheless, McCarthy, who hopes to open next month, told Grub that he was “very happy” with the deal. [Earlier]
