A liquor license application has been filed for 268 Main St., site of the former City Grill.
The applicant, Joshua Archer, has been the chef-operator at the Essex Inn, an historic 11-room Lake Champlain inn featuring a farm-to-table restaurant.
Reached by phone this morning, he declined to discuss his plans for the restaurant, at the advice of his attorney.
The site's former tenant, City Grill, closed in 2012. Two years earlier a gunman shot eight people, four fatally, as they were leaving the restaurant, in one of the city's worst shootings.
