PRINCETON: University agrees to buy liquor license from local restaurateur (UPDATED, 5:08 p.m.)
Deal for $1.5 million still needs council approval
Princeton University agreed to buy a liquor license from local restaurateur Jack Morrison for $1.5 million for the café and restaurant the school plans to open at the old Dinky station, records obtained by The Princeton Packet showed.
The two sides reached the deal last year, with the school now going through the legal formality of getting municipal officials to give their stamp of approval.
The university, through a limited liability company known as MTP Holdings, applied Jan.5 to the town clerk’s office for a liquor license transfer. The Princeton Council will need to vote to approve, although there is no date set for when that will occur.

Schedule Change for Princeton University Concerts
Stefan Jackiw will take place of Isabelle Faust on Feb. 5
PRINCETON University Concerts has announced that violinist Isabelle Faust has had to cancel her concert with Alexander Melnikov scheduled for Feb. 5 at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall on the Princeton University Campus. In her place violinist Stefan Jackiw who will perform a duo program with pianist Anna Polonksy of works by Ravel, Witold Lutoslawski, Kaija Saariaho and Franck. The date and time of the concert will remain the same.
In a press release, Marna Seltzer, director of the Princeton University Concerts Series said, “We are disappointed not to be able to hear Faust and Melnikov but given the fast and international trajectory of their career I feel certain that we will have the opportunity to hear them in Princeton in a future season. This cancellation gives us a chance to introduce our audience to a pair of artists who are among the most remarkable players of today’s generation. Jackiw’s playing is very much in the spirit of the concert that we were to hear. He is a remarkable musician whose playing is marked by poetry and purity combined with an impeccable technique, which is something I might also have ascribed to Isabelle Faust. For that reason, this is an ideal substitution and I feel sure that our audience is in for a real treat.”
Mr. Jackiw’s program will include Maurice Ravel’s “Tzigane,” Witold Lutoslawski’s “Partita,” Kaija Saariaho “Nocturne in memory of W. Lutoslawski” and César Franck’s Sonata in A Major.
