Concerns raised over restaurant proposal

April 30, 2014

Restaurateurs of 818 Restaurant Group, LLC want to open a new establishment at the former Post Office Cafe and Rok Bar and Grill on Main Street. But the Town Council is hesitant of giving the OK due to past noise issues at that location.

EAST GREENWICH — Any new business coming into a particular town, like East Greenwich, is always proverbial music to the ears of local government officials.

John Davis and Ketan Patel, co-partners of 818 Restaurant Group, LLC, approached the East Greenwich Town Council Monday evening at Town Hall requesting a new alcoholic beverage license with victualing and entertainment for their new restaurant, Havana’s, that they wish to open at 11 Main St., the same location as the former Post Office Café and recently-closed Rok Bar and Grill, in a public hearing.
