(Feb. 28, 2014) The Board of License Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during the Feb. 19 meeting in Snow Hill.
Touch of Italy
The board granted the request of Robert Ciprietti and Joe Curzi for a transfer of the seven-day Class B beer, wine and liquor license from Harrison Group to Touch of Italy Ocean City.
Reflections, the fine dining restaurant in the 67th Street Holiday Inn, will be renovated to become Touch of Italy.
The new business will have a storefront entrance and will include a deli, pizza station, restaurant, 32-seat bar and a wine room.
Ciprietti and Curzi own other Touch of Italy restaurants in Rehoboth, Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, Del.
The board approved the request to transfer the Class D seven-day beer, wine and liquor license from Castaway’s General Store Inc. to Sun TRS LL Castaways LLC at Castaways RV Resort and Campground at 12652 Eagles Nest Road near the Eagles Nest Golf Course in West Ocean City.
No changes will be made in the operation of the campground, attorney Joe Moore said.
The board approved the request of owner Nolan Graves to expand the licensed premises of the Crab Bag at 130th Street and Coastal Highway.
The expanded area includes the former site of the Kite Loft.
Graves said the additional room is needed because customers “generally have a two-hour wait” during the summer months.
The business has a seven-day Class B beer, wine and liquor license.
The board granted the request of Justine Zegna for a Class B seven-day beer, wine and liquor license for Blacksmith at 104 Pitts St. in Berlin.
Zegna said she hopes to open the new fine dining restaurant in March. She will serve brunch, lunch, dinner and late night fare.
The restaurant may have one television. Zegna may call the board’s administrator if she has a special request for entertainment.
