Shorewood - Shorewood's Community Development Authority on Friday recommended the village give a $102,500 loan to help North Star American Bistro move to a larger location.
The loan would have to be approved by the Village Board, which will consider it Jan. 19.
The bistro has been run by Michael Stoner and Dan (Duffy) O'Neil since October 2004 at 4515 N. Oakland Ave., according to the restaurant's loan application. The bistro says its lease is expiring and it wants to move into a larger space in the Cornerstone Building, 4514 N. Oakland Ave.
The larger space would enable the restaurant to add five to 10 full- and part-time jobs, the application says.
The 10-year loan would be at 2% interest. It would be used to make improvements to the building and to buy equipment.
The restaurant is also requesting a $50,000 grant from the village for improvements to the building.
North Star American Bistro was one of Journal Sentinel dining critic Carol Deptolla's top 30 restaurants for 2009.
