Praised for adding “urban” flavor and criticized for adding to parking woes, Teak resturant won approval Monday night to build the Red Bank’s first rooftop dining space.
Planning board vice chairman Dan Mancuso, who was on the short end of a 6-2 vote, blasted the expansion, which was alternately described as having a shortfall of 39 and 66 parking spaces.
“I’ve gotta tell you, you’re squeezing every inch out of this property, as the previous owner did,” he told co-owner Charlie Lyristis. “I don’t see this as a win for the town at all.”
