A new Italian restaurant and a Mexican restaurant may fill the empty spaces at Broadway at the Beach that were vacated when Burroughs & Chapin Co. Inc. ended contracts with the previous renters.
Carlos'n Charlie's, a Mexican restaurant, applied to get approval from the Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board to repaint the building, add carousel horses, signs and make some other improvements to the property formerly occupied by Tony Roma's.
Capriz, an Italian restaurant, is seeking approval for the addition of a covered terrace, exterior renovation, painting and a new roof. The restaurant will move into the space occupied by Tripps Restaurant.
Tony Roma's closed Sept. 12 after its lease was not renewed. At the time, Romy Chapman, the general manager, said the restaurant had wanted to renew the lease but was not allowed to. The restaurant had been doing well and business was steady, Chapman said.
Tony Roma's and Tripps, which closed in October, had been open since Broadway at the Beach debuted 15 years ago.
B & C, which owns Broadway at the Beach said a few months ago that it was planning to open three new restaurants at the entertainment complex and hadn't renewed some of the leases because it wanted to bring in new concepts.
