Brentwood Town Council wants to change the closing time of a forthcoming eatery and cocktail bar on Rhode Island Avenue.
This past July, the Prince George’s County Board of License Commissioners (more commonly known as the Liquor Board) unanimously approved an application by restaurateur and culinary entrepreneur April Richardson’s Savor at 3807 “food hall” allowing the establishment to serve alcohol from 11 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and between 11 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Saturday. The eatery and cocktail bar will be located inside the still-under-construction Studio at 3807 apartment building at, appropriately, 3807 Rhode Island Avenue. But the Liquor Board approved that license without taking the opinion of Brentwood’s Town Council into consideration. Prior to the Liquor Board’s approval of Richardson’s application, Brentwood Council members had drafted a letter asking that the restaurant’s closing time be limited to midnight each night. That letter was not sent to the Liquor Board by the time they approved Savor’s liquor license.
