Rest in Peace,
A view of the petition that divides the two patios and the curb cut parking lot.

This photo depicts the first and second patio as well as evidencing the curb was cut to accomodate the off street parking of vehicles. There is a petition and entrance way from the small 32 seat patio into the larger non-conforming patio.
What must be remembered is that there are several bars/restaurants/nightclubs that guilty of the exact same thing - after the ratified resolutions are handed down by BOZA granting the parking variances, business owners construct illegally permitted patios in the designated required parking sites.
If a residential homeowner were to build a deck onto their home without obtaining the proper permits followed by inspections, they would have their asses hauled into court, fined and ostersized - maybe even instructed to dismantel the add on quicker that you could say lickety-split. You can't get a code enforcer or inspector from Building and Housing to even come out and take a look at these non-permitted constructions.
