The county liquor board will consider three applications tonight, including a license transfer from Buell's restaurant, a Route 40 landmark, to a family that wants to open a Chinese-Szechwan eatery.
The sale of Buell's to the Lee family of Ellicott City hinges upon the transfer of the tavern license. The Lee family plans to open Uncle Y.Y.'s.
When Buell's opened in 1939, it was the only restaurant along Route 40 west of Baltimore.
