City council approved the licenses in the Riverfront Downtown Dining District during Tuesday's meeting.

Proximo, a new Latin restaurant going in where The Golden was, received one of those licenses.

One of its owners said the cheaper license is helping grow downtown.

"It's a real economic stimulus to get restaurants downtown. Some people already think it's risky. We obviously, this will be a second restaurant - third concept downtown, we don't think it's as risky," said James Khan.

The city created the licenses in a Riverfront Downtown Dining District a few years ago.

The licenses cost $1000 to file and $2500 a year.

Caliente Cuban Cafe and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse also received liquor licenses.
