Pattaporn Lovwatcharasophon returned to the Seaside City Council for the second time in six months, seeking a liquor license for a new restaurant, The Sea, at 1480 S. Roosevelt Dr., the site of the former West Lake Restaurant.
In July, Lovwatcharasophon asked and won a beer and wine sales permit at Thai Me Up, across the street at 1575 S. Roosevelt Drive.
The Sea will serve Cajun-style seafood, the owner said to members of the council on Monday, Dec. 9.
She said the restaurant will open in the beginning of 2020.
“There are still a couple things to get done in the building,” she said, including interior updates and equipment set-up.
Det. Sgt. Guy Knight of the Seaside Police Department reviewed the application, and did not find any disqualifying information or reason to deny the application.
The liquor license received unanimous council approval.
