At Tuesday evening's council meeting, the council approved the special use permit for Darby Road Public House and Restaurant.
During the summer, Patch covered the naming of Darby Road and story behind the group of high school friends who's idea it was to open the location.
Proprietor Mike Brennan attended the council meeting to address any questions and show the plans of the restaurant plus its outdoor seating section.
On Monday between 5p.m. and 8p.m. Darby Road will hold an opening ceremony, opened to town officials, friends and family, featuring cocktails and hors d'ouveres, with an official ribbon cutting at 6:30 p.m.
The official open to the public date for Darby Road wil be Wednesday September 26th.
Brennan noted the hours of Darby Road will be from 11a.m. to 2p.m. for lunch, 5p.m. to 10:30p.m. for dinner and possibly until around 1 a.m. on the weekends.
The restaurant will serve Irish fare and American Classics.
Brennan was very considerate of concerns from one resident about use of the public parking lots. He noted Darby Road would do all it could to be a well-liked part of the community.
Mayor Mary DePaola, along with the rest of the council, congratulated Brennan and wished him the best of luck with the new business.
