Burgers and beer. Pizza and wine.
Algonquin soon could have two new eateries that serve alcohol if the Committee of the Whole recommends they receive liquor licenses Tuesday evening.
Cattleman’s Burger and Brew, 205 S. Main St., is expected to open downtown, according to village documents. An exact date was not available Monday.
A crew was painting the bright blue and brown building Monday.
Earlier this month, Village President John Schmitt said he expects more businesses to open in the historic area when construction is complete in the coming weeks.
The company is seeking a liquor license to allow alcohol to be served for consumption on the premises, and to allow the sale of wine in sealed containers for consumption off the premises.
MOD Super Fast Pizza hopes to open an eatery at 228 S. Randall Road next to McAlister’s Deli. The company is seeking a license to allow it to serve beer and wine for consumption inside the fast-casual eatery and on a patio.
Village staff have recommended approval for both businesses. The Committee of the Whole will recommend whether the full Village Board should approve the requests this fall.
MOD Pizza aims to offer a “super fast pizza experience,” according to the company’s website. The company claims to pioneer a “fast-casual concept that puts you in the driver’s seat.”
The chain offers artisan-style pizzas and salads made on demand and ready in minutes.
Patrons can choose from more than 30 toppings at no additional cost.
This would be the first MOD Pizza in McHenry County.
