Evanston approves liquor license for Pete Miller’s Steak House

Pete Miller’s Seafood and Prime Steak will continue to serve alcohol after the liquor control board approved a liquor license for the restaurant Friday.

The restaurant, located at 1557 Sherman Ave., changed owners and therefore needed to reapply for a liquor license, said Wendy McCambridge, administrative adjudication liquor license manager for the city of Evanston.

Pete Miller currently has a class B liquor license, which, according to the Evanston Code, allows for the sale and consumption of alcohol on the premises while food is available. The Evanston Code limits the number of liquor licenses approved in a year, so the board had to meet and approve the measure, McCambridge said.

The issuance comes a month after the board postponed the awarding of a liquor license to Tilted Kilt, a proposed bar and restaurant downtown.

Pete Miller’s license will be finalized at the council’s next meeting at the end of the month.
