I am sorry to hear this.

Have you taken possession of the premises?

Does the lease specify who is responsible for getting the city permit?

we have taken possession.
Yes, we are responsible for the city permit.
Thank you for taking my case, because I don’t know much about law sometimes I ask you too much which is outa of your limit please accept my apology at first. I don’t have intention to make you uncomfortable. Just let know. Thank you.
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

I am sorry but given what you wrote about the contract, the landlord is still entitled to the rent even thought the restaurant is not up and running yet. You can try to ask for a discount but the landlord is not legally obligated to reduce the rent just because the permit has not been issued yet.

I am sorry this is not the answer you had hoped for, but it would be unfair to you, and unprofessional of me, not to provide accurate information.

I hope this information is helpful.
