A debate over whether a proposed up-scale restaurant/bar in Allentown should close early at 2 a.m. was finally decided Tuesday.

The Buffalo Common Council felt a compromise was best allowing owners of the planned "Fallie Allen" restaurant/bar at 204 Allen Street to stay open until 4 a.m. for one year. At that point, the closing time will be re-evaluated to see how it is affecting nearby residents.
