The former Hilltop Restaurant and Kodiak Grill will serve beer and wine when it reopens this summer.
According to a KBOI-TV report, the three Ada County Commissioners approved the beer and wine license to the three new owners of the historic Highway 21 restaurant.
The restaurant has been closed for more than a year. The trio of new Boise ownersbrothers Eric and Tate McCullough as well as Paul Norbyplan to change the name to Hilltop Station and hope to reopen the restaurant this summer after completing renovations.
A convenience store on the site could be open in the coming weeks.
The owners application for the license ran into a technical snag. By law, 75 percent of residents living near the premise must approve the license. One of the restaurants two neighbors voiced some concerns about the license, saying previous owners focused more on serving alcohol than serving food.
After denying the owners application for a license, the commissioners agreed to hear the owners appeal and approved issuing the license Wednesday with a unanimous vote.
