Shanghai Bistro gains liquor license


Shanghai Bistro, an American Chinese restaurant and sushi bar that arrived in Hudson last February, will receive the additional Class B liquor license that the city subsequently made available.

The City Council on Monday night unanimously picked Shanghai Bistro to receive the license over a proposed night club in the now mostly vacant River City Center on Second Street.

There was little discussion of the issue prior to the vote.
