A public hearing on requests for liquor and entertainment licenses from a restaurateur who wants to reopen a vacant Main Street restaurant is scheduled before the Warren Town Council tonight, Dec. 10.

The meeting starts at 6:30 pm in the Council Chamber in Town Hall.

Steven Correa, who operates Aruba Steve’s Bar and Grill in Providence, wants to open a second location by the same name in the former India restaurant at 520 Main St. next to Town Hall. 

The Town Council gave him a victualing license about a month ago and scheduled a hearing for the full liquor license today. Correa reportedly has signed a purchase and sale agreement for the former India building, which has been vacant and up for sale for several years, 

Before the hearing, the Town Council will make a presentation of the Carnegie Hero Award to a Warren man for his actions in saving the life of a woman in a burning car about a year ago. Patrick Rimoshytus, 43, a former firefighter, risked his own life and suffered burns while cutting the woman, 68, out of the front seat of her car.

Here is the complete agenda for tonight’s meeting:
