Nouveau Tavern temporarily re-opens as restaurant

Nouveau Tavern in Chicago's River North community has its liquor license renewed.

CHICAGO -- A popular River North restaurant shut down last week over safety concerns is being allowed to re-open.

The Nouveau Tavern can reopen for dinner starting Thursday night.

A Cook County judge shut the business down last week after neighbors made several complaints about fights and loud music.

While the tavern can serve food, it can't act as a nightclub. That means DJs can't play and the business must shut down earlier than normal.

Both sides are due back in court April 30th.
