New owners are looking to convert the property at 116 West Broadway into a restaurant, according to minutes of the August planning board meeting. An application in with the village’s planning department is seeking a variance to build a 2,165 square foot restaurant in its place. The plan calls for 18 parking space and the requested variances include insufficient parking, oversized restaurant and location within 400 feet of another restaurant.
The application is listed as Martin Levine of Eldorado Holding Corp. There is no contact information for the company and it is unknown if it’s related to Eldorado American Grill on Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station.
The property is adjacent to the Port Jefferson Ferry bordering the Brookhaven Town war memorial park on the west and is neighbors to the Chamber of Commerce "Roe House" building on the east side.
An email sent to the Port Jefferson Village Planning Department was not returned at the time of the writing of this article for comment. We will follow up on this as more information becomes available.
