Catfish Owners Want to Open, But Neighbors Aren’t Biting


Three Brooklyn guys who’ve been working on opening a Cajun-style bar and restaurant called Catfish on a residential stretch of Bedford Avenue in Crown Heights have been told they must close by midnight on weekdays if they want to serve liquor, DNAinfo reports. Maxx Colson, Aaron Giroux, and Luke Wheeler made appearances at CB8 Brooklyn meetings to defend their bar project, which they planned to keep open until 4 a.m. on weekends. When the board’s SLA committee offered team Catfish a 2 a.m. weekend closing time, the restaurant’s owners allegedly declined, and the State Liquor Authority responded with the even more restrictive conditions.
