Restaurant owners, CB10 meet to talk changes after brawl
After video showing a large melee inside a popular City Island restaurant went viral, its owners met with Community Board 10 to discuss changes they have made since that night to ensure the violence does not reoccur.
In the video taken in February, at least a dozen people can be seen fighting and hurling chairs at the Seafood City restaurant located at 459 City Island Ave.
Restaurant owners held a private meeting Friday with Community Board 10 and the NYPD's 45th Precinct to discuss ways to maintain a family-friendly establishment while still serving alcohol. Changes made so far include closing the bar earlier and closely monitoring alcohol consumption.
A public meeting will be help in a couple of weeks where the New York State Liquor Authority will address further changes.
