There is an orange placard up at the former furniture store at the corner of West 2nd Avenue an Fayette, which means that a liquor license is now part of the plan for the new Mexican restaurant coming to the property. The new restaurant, from the owners of El Limon, appears to be named Tierra Caliente, based on the name listed as the applicant on the placard.
The placard states that the license in question is a transfer from the now closed Spamps. Since the license in question exists within Conshohocken, it does not have to be approved by the municipality. If it was coming from outside the municipality, as it did when The Lucky Dog moved to Conshohocken, it would have to be approved by Borough Council.
Wondering what Tierra Caliente means? According to Wikipedia, “Tierra caliente is a pseudo-climatological term used in Latin America to refer to those places within that realm which have a distinctly tropical climate.
Don’t like the idea of a liquor license near your home or business? There is actually a process to protest the transfer of the license.
