Three Yonkers restaurants have lost their liquor license as part of a statewide crackdown on eateries breaking COVID-19 rules.
The Sahara Café on South Broadway lost its liquor license back in late October and is currently closed.
The Uptown Bar and Grille, also located on South Broadway, is closed. A posted notification from the state Liquor Authority shows that the restaurant had its liquor license suspended for failing to follow state guidelines.
At Margarita’s Restaurant and Lounge, all bottles of alcohol have been removed.
State inspectors pulled the plug at all three establishments after officials found more patrons than allowed under COVID-19 guidelines.
In a statement this week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, “Unfortunately however, some establishments have continued to ignore the rules, putting their customers as well as their community as a whole at risk.
Margarita’s Restaurant and Bar is only open for food, and say it hopes to have its liquor license back by January.
