Amy Morton’s second Evanston restaurant is scheduled to open next week, and the City Council moved to approve a half dozen new liquor licenses in town this week.

Eater says the “modern meaterie,” which has been in the works for the long-abandoned former Borden Dairy stables at the back of 1016 Church St. for more than a year-and-a-half, will have a selection of steaks along with pork, chicken and other dishes on its dinner menu when it opens next Tuesday.

Morton is well known in town for her Found Kitchen a few blocks away on Chicago Avenue.

The City Council Monday night approved for introduction:

  • A Class D liquor license for Asian Cajun Too, which opened recently at 1322 Chicago Ave.
  • A Class T liquor license for The Caterist at 940 Pitner Ave.

And it both introduced and gave final approval to:

  • A Class P-4 liquor license for North Shore Cider at 707 Howard St.
  • A Class U liquor license for Studio 5 at Dance Center Evanston, 1934 Dempster St.
  • A Class D liquor license for Sam’s Chicken and Ribs at 1639 Orrington Ave.
  • A Class P-3 liquor license for Meta Wine, a wholesale and retail wine shop moving into the former Piccolo Theatre space at 600 Main St.

The council also introduced a new liquor license class that would permit the sale of booze at the new Quad Indoor Sports dome on Oakton Street.
