Charlie Vatori, the current owner of Charlie’s Pub at 114 N. Third Street, would love to take over 17 N. Third Street (the former Carmelita Boutique), but it hasn’t proved so easy for him. Vatori would like to convert the space to a restaurant that will occupy the first and second floors, stock it with some pool tables and build a roof deck. There are numerous protests and petitions, however. Vatori currently doesn’t have a food-use permit for this address, and will have to apply to transfer over his liquor license. Most likely Vatori will get clearance as soon as he nixes the roof deck and pool tables.
