Despite objections by some neighbors, ANC 6B endorsed the effort by Bullfrog Bagels to secure a liquor license for its planned Eastern Market location, Capitol Hill Corner reported.
Neighbors of the proposed eatery complained that early morning deliveries in the back alley of the location at 317 7th St. SE would be disruptive and worried about trash management.
Jeremiah Cohen, the owner of Bullfrog Bagels, agreed to try to limit the disruptions caused by deliveries, but did not agree to receive deliveries through the building’s front door as some neighbors had requested.
The ANC’s approval also hinged on reducing the hours that alcohol will be served at the eatery by 30 minutes per day.
Cohen plans to serve brunch and dinner with alcoholic beverages at the new location.
A lawyer representing the neighbors who objected to the liquor license endorsement told Capitol Hill Corner that residents were disappointed with the ANC’s decision to approve the license.
The issue will now go before the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration on Dec. 14.
