Justin Severino has confirmed that Cure in Lawrenceville has secured a liquor license. Should all go as planned, the restaurant will serve alcohol by early December.
Through the holidays, diners will have a choice of wines by the glass, craft beers on draught and a handful of bottles, "with Yuengling to keep the yinzers happy," he quipped.
Come January, Mr. Severino will build out the bar to accommodate a more ambitious beer, wine and cocktail program. "I'm going to build a bar," he said. "And it's going to be awesome."
In keeping with the restaurant's design for the build-out, he is sourcing reclaimed materials. His partners who helped him design and build Cure are in on the expansion.
"I don't know what's more fun," said Mr. Severino. "Building or owning a restaurant."
