Denied a Liquor License, Restauranteurs Sue Electeds
The lawsuit also charges CB 15 chair Theresa Scavo with discriminating against them because they are non-Jews.
Scavo, in response, pointed to the more than 300 local residents who had opposed the restaurant.
It's unclear if Cymbrowitz and Golden, although they opposed the liquor license, spread rumors that the restaurant would feature strippers.
The owners claim to have lost $425,000 in renovations and a projected $4.5 million in profits due to the denial of the liquor license.
The restaurant, which has never opened, is trying to negotiate a rent deal with its landlord.
