At its special meeting last night to vote on a proposed new 74-seat sidewalk cafe for Cantina 1910, members of the WFCW block club voted in favor of it by a margin of 15 to 4. The original proposal was amended to shorten the hours of operation of the cafe, from midnight to 11pm from Sunday through Thursday. The hours approved by the vote are:
- Sunday-Thursday 8am-11pm
- Friday-Saturday 8am-midnight
The ultimate decision about whether or not to approve the cafe is up to Ald. Pawar.
UU Note: Cantina 1910 was recently chosen as one of the best brunch places in Chicago by TimeOut Chicago. Its pastries -- "the huge, chili-spiced cinnamon bun or the crisp churros with roasted- cinnamon sugar" -- were specifically praised.
