Not approved for issuance of restaurant license.

The report pertains to the Main Kitchen, Bar, and the Banquet Hallway and Executive Lounge service by the Main Kitchen. The Main Kitchen utilizes food storage facilities on a second level in the form of walk-in refrigeration and freezer units. These areas are not completed and not part of the temporary Certificate of Occupancy.
