Saigon Nine / Tan Tuu Quan

I was mistaken when I wrote that the Tan Tuu Quan people were just changing the name of the restaurant to Saigon Nine. There really are new owners.

The new folks:

Amie from the North Beacon Hill Council had this to say about the Good Neighbor Agreement that's being worked out:

The scoop on the GNA - there hasn't been much done. We posted it on the agenda and sent it out to this list was after the first contact with the city attorney. He, on his own, met with the new owners (I don't think the council board new about it before the meeting). The second meeting hasn't happened yet. There has not been a GNA drafted yet, I think he is still working on it. They are actually pretty generic, we have one with the new owners of the Shell station. Basically they say they will welcome police into their establishment, not hinder investigations, call police when they see suspicious or illegal activity, paint over graffiti immediately, keep the area clean, follow all the laws including not serve liquor after 2am and not server minors, etc. All things you would think wouldn't need to be written down, but provides some ammunition if the place becomes a nuisance since it is tied to their liquor license. It is near impossible to revoke a license once granted.

If you would like to still submit suggestions or be more involved, you can email me or John McGoodwin, city attorney (I don't have his email, you can probably find it on the city website). He can't make the GNA unreasonable (like make them remodel the place, or even put in big windows). First impressions are that the new owners will do a better job than the current owners at being good neighbors. They used to have a restaurant in rainier ave, but lease ended. That place didn't have a liquor license though.


I did find the city attorney's e-mail address on the website. Here it is, if you want to bug him:

Hmmm. Well, I still won't be going there. It still reeks of bar-bar not restaurant-bar.
