CITY OF OCONOMOWOC - It is unclear if Fong's owner Tommy Lin has plans to reopen the Chinese restaurant in the city.
Lin has surrendered the liquor license attached to for his former business. Two Oconomowoc restaurants wasted little time in applying for it .
VIP Sushi & Hibachi, 1288 Summit Ave., No. 118, and Dimitri Glavas, of 515 E. Wisconsin Ave., have applied for the Class B liquor license, which allows businesses to sell liquor and fermented malt beverages.
Glavas has submitted the application for the site of the former Buca All Day Eatery and Grill, which closed after a fire in May. Glavas told city officials he plans to repair the building and open a new restaurant at the location, but no business plans have been submitted.
The common council on Tuesday night was expected to vote on the license, but the item was delayed indefinitely.
Fong business phone number has been disconnected. The restaurant closed Feb. 5. A personal telephone number for Lin could not be found.
Oconomowoc director of economic development Robert Duffy said the former owner has not contacted the city about reopening.
