The Iowa City City Council granted a liquor license to a new restaurant set to open in the former location of 808.

Co-owners of Atlas and Jimmy Jack's, James Adrien and Jack Piper, are set to open Basta, 121 Iowa Ave. The two have teamed up with Brady McDonald to open the Italian-style restaurant.

They expect to open toward the beginning of June, Piper said. The trio are renovating the former bar to fit the owners' expectations of a restaurant to benefit the entire community, he said.
