The owners of Bombay Indian Cuisine in Oak Bluffs made a pitch to the select board Tuesday to elevate their business from regular restaurant to an indoor-outdoor dance, yoga, karaoke and Bollywood-streaming hub. Their plans, however, were shot down by the board over its concerns about noise in the restaurant’s residential neighborhood.

The year-round eatery, located on Oakland avenue, opened last fall under both a business and entertainment license. Co-owners Austin Grande and Raj Patel hoped to amend their entertainment license and expand the restaurant’s offerings after nearly a year of steady business.

But the board feared their ideas strayed too far from the original business model.

“You’re no longer the restaurant that you came to this board and vowed to be,” said board member Gail Barmakian. “I understand your desire to do this. It’s noteworthy. But I think you really need to consider what you opened up as… because now you’re changing your whole focus.”

Ms. Barmakian also added that the area, away from the bustling downtown, is first and foremost residential, and that the board has historically been cautious to allow nearby businesses to have amplified sound and outdoor activities.

“We have music playing at our bar all the time and every day… nobody has had concerns,” said Mr. Patel.

Still, the board suggested that he and Mr. Grande revise their application and work to evolve the restaurant more gradually.

“Build good neighbor-ship, as you’ve done so far… and find your priorities,” said board member Tom Hallahan. “Maybe find one or two things that you’d like to do and come back.”

In other business, select board chair Emma Green-Beach announced that the board will be reviewing police reports regarding licensed alcohol establishments over the next few weeks. The review is in anticipation of the 30-minute shortening of the town’s last call that is scheduled to start Oct. 1.

In April, the select board agreed that it would conduct regular check-ins with the police department and businesses over the summer to discuss public safety. If it appears late-night rowdiness is on the decline, it will reconsider the last call change.
