The board on Wednesday delayed a decision on the renewal so town officials can ask the facility's management to appear before the board. Council members said they had concerns about safety and security at the location.
A heated argument in April escalated into a physical melee involving about a half-dozen young adults, most of whom appeared to be teenage girls who are seen in a social media video repeatedly pummeling each other and pulling hair.
Town Attorney Stanley Sliwa said the restaurant is currently operating without a license. The town's building and police departments have recommended approval of the renewal.
