Starting next week, you can enjoy some alcohol with your meal at An's Lemongrass Grille -- at least the downtown location at 1617 California Street. It was recently awarded a liquor license, and the plan is to start serving beer and wine, and maybe some sake as well.
The local chain also had a liquor-license hearing in mid-July for its location at 2643 West 32nd Avenue, and another last week for the An's at 2373 Central Park Boulevard in Stapleton. Assuming those went as smoothly as the hearing for the downtown spot, you'll soon be able to enjoy some boozy refreshment at any of the three An''s locations.
General Manager Lamont Dailey says that the chain went for the licenses after getting lots of requests for liquor from its customers. He hopes having alcohol on the menu will help attract a sit-down dinner crowd, especially in Stapleton.
