Keep Cibo Open in Glencoe!
PLEASE NOTE: NO DONATION IS NECESSARY!
Please sign this petition to let the Village of Glencoe know you want to keep our new Italian restaurant Cibo Trattoria open in Glencoe!
To date, because of complications to obtain a liquor license under the current Glencoe Village code, the restaurant partners chose to withdraw their application because they were led to believe they would not be granted approval by the Village of Glencoe. The Village also recently ordered the restaurant to cease and desist BYOB as the Village has a policy that strictly prohibits it. Since then, the restaurant's business has dropped significantly, making it impossible to continue keep its doors open. Given this environment, the restaurant has no choice but to close THIS SATURDAY.
Cibo opened roughly a month ago by Glencoe business owner, Rick Raschillo, who also owns MVP Fitness, along with partners and Glencoe residents Tim Cribb and Steve Santiccioli. Additionally the restaurant was impeccably decorated by a Glencoe resident. All involved have strong ties to the residents of Glencoe and were willing to invest further in the community by opening Cibo. Since opening, Cibo has become a welcome addition to our community, providing exceptional food and a beautiful, fun place to dine with friends and family as well as connect to the community. Furthermore, Cibo has received rave reviews throughout the media.
Cibo brought new life to the Village among many shuttered businesses and service businesses such as dry cleaners and banks. The restaurant enhanced the appeal of the Village and gave residents something to be proud of.
The Village's management team's decision to deny Cibo BYOB rights does not represent the opinions of its residents, and moreover, it's out of touch with what the residents want in our own town.
Please sign this petition by THIS THURSDAY, 7/23, at 3PM to let the Village of Glencoe know you want BYOB rights granted to Cibo, and ideally a liquor license. This isn't about the alcohol. This is about enhancing our Village with a respectable and delicious place to dine, while providing us with a beautiful space to connect to our community.
