Huntington Beach approved the request of a downtown restaurant owner who had a public battle with a local activist for wanting to serve alcohol in his outdoor dining area.
Zoning Administrator Ricky Ramos on June 1 allowed Alessandro Pirozzi, Cucina Alessá's owner, to extend his alcohol services to customers dining on his patio, Associate Planner Tess Nguyen said.
The decision can be appealed to the Planning Commission no later than 10 days from the date of approval.
Staff recommended approval of Pirozzi's request, saying it does not conflict with city policy.
