The Oak Park Board of Trustees unanimously approved a new liquor license for Saigon Pho and Café, 726 Lake St.

Hai Tran, an Oak Park resident and the son of Saigon Pho owners, Huynh and Tuyet Tran, said he applied for the liquor license over concern about a future streetscaping project that he worries will hurt his business.

Tran said another restaurant his mother owned, not in Oak Park, was hurt by a similar streetscaping project and he applied for the license to help his family’s restaurant if business declines.
