Maybe you're not "just kidding".
How can you sell enough food as a restaurant with 16 seats to carry the rent, property taxes, staff, and other expenses, unless you're going to sell a lot of booze.

12:45,
To be fair, it really is a very small space.

Toki does not have much space either and look how successful it has been. If this place has good food and carryout, it will do well. I'm hopeful.

Souk applying for a tavern license and giving up their current one may be another story however.

I don't like it.

There's also the patio, so it's not always going to be just 16 seats. There's a lot of outdoor space there. I'm not sure how much they'd be taking, but that's easily going to more than double the number of seats. If they heat the patio it could be kept in use for much of the year.

I say give them the full license.

Anon 2/12 11:04 -- was that a hypothetical, or is Souk changing from a CR to a CT?

Chris,
Souk is changing from a CR to a CT.

I think it's cool

Did I read right, 16 seats. What is this the Toki idea of build it too small and they will come. Lordy! I may as well open a bistro in a telephone booth, that is if I can find one. It would be a hit, space for 1, it's always booked.
