Southport RR depot cafe plan back on track?

Cafe Society, an upscale coffee shop/bistro proposed for the New York-bound side of the Southport Railroad Station, may not be sidetracked after all. The months-old plan for the restaurant, which sparked neighborhood opposition last year, will again be on the agenda for the Parking Authority's meeting next week. James Walsh, the lawyer representing the Cafe Society applicant, in June requested an extension from the panel in order to respond to a letter from the state Department of Transportation. The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 30 in Sullivan-Independence Hall. According to the May 17 letter from Eugene Colonese, rail administrator for the DOT, the department could not approve the application from Cafe Society to occupy the renovated and rebuilt westbound building.
