An article in last Thursday's Davis County Clipper has made me think about the past a bit. The article talks about Bountiful City's decision to deny a beer license for El Matador restaurant. I applaud the City Council for taking such a step. Not so much for denying a beer license, but, more for standing up for their own ordinance.
Artoosh Hasratian, owner of the El Matador, at one time contemplated re-locating in Woods Cross. I know he was made aware of our beer license ordinance and where he could and couldn't locate. I'd be very surprised if the same thing didn't happen in Bountiful. He chose to build his restaurant where he did. There are other places he could have built. He could have even chosen to build in Woods Cross at 700 South and 700 West. There is a nice vacant spot there that would be perfect for a restaurant.
