Thirsty Oak Parkers will have a new watering hole soon, following a decision on Monday night.
Village trustees approved a liquor license this week, for an Oak Parker to operate a bar and restaurant at 1101 Lake, the former home of Cosi restaurant. Rachel Dennis is calling the new pub "Lake Street Kitchen + Bar," according to village documents.
The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m., serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night eats. The menu is described as "American-eclectic," with the kitchen operating until they close.
Dennis could not be reached for comment Monday, but village documents say she's a lifelong Oak Parker who spent several years working as a waitress, and has a legal background and worked as vice president of a national restaurant company.
Lake Street Kitchen Bar will seat as many as 80 people. They're planning to open in August.
