A former liquor store on Elmwood Avenue, next to the Cozumel Grill, is turning into a restaurant with a focus on "healthy food," a prospective restauranteur told city officials today.
Jimmy Chebat and Noel Sutton got approval this afternoon from the Buffalo Common Council's Legislation Committee to use 149 Elmwood Ave. as a restaurant, to be called Saavoy. Chebat was not asked to further describe his menu.
The full Council is expected to approve the new use at the property when it meets next Tuesday. Plans are to open by the end of summer, said Chebat.
