The new Carroll's restaurant that's moving into 21 Main St. will be allowed to stay open until 1 a.m.
The city council approved a request from the restaurant to remain open until 1 a.m. 7 days a week. The city ordinance allows businesses to stay open until 11 p.m.
The council approved the request by a 6-0-1 vote, with Frederick Dello Russo absent.
Maury Carroll, co-owner of the planned restaurant, said it will feature American-style grill food, seafood and roasted beefs. They hope to open the second week of December, he said.
The restaurant was also granted a victualler license by the city council.
In a phone interview last week with Patch, Carroll said the restaurant and bar will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night eats, featuring a menu with "some interesting items."
The Carroll family owned a diner further South on Main Street - called Carroll's - from the 1930s until 1986.
"We think it will be something special," Carroll said last week. "We know the Square is getting rejuvenated and we’re pleased to be a piece of the puzzle."
