Chinese Tuxedo, a new restaurant opening at 5 Doyers St., won approval from a Community Board 3 committee last night for a wine and beer permit.

Last spring, CB3 rejected a full liquor license for the 200 seat restaurant due to concerns about overcrowding on s small street. The applicants, Hok Lam and Eddy Buckingham, then went to the State Liquor Authority for beer and wine. According to Alex Militano, CB3’s SLA Committee chairperson, the state required the partners to go through the community board first.

Lam and Buckingham worked out a deal with local residents. agreeing to certain operating restrictions. They’ll close the restaurant (now 162 seats) no later than 1 a.m. They’ll also wait at least 18 months before returning to the board with a request for a full bar.

Chinese Tuxedo is billed as a Melbourne-style (as in Australia) Chinese restaurant.
