Chelsea's Cafe banned from serving alcohol

Update: Chelsea's Cafe is no longer allowed to serve alcohol effective immediately. 

The move comes after a first circuit court of appeals overturned a judge's ruling allowing the restaurant to serve liquor.

State Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control agents yanked the restaurant's liquor license in April allowing Chelsea's to only operate as a restaurant.

ATC Commissioner Murphy Painter argued some restaurants, like Chelsea's, were circumventing state law by selling more alcohol than food when they became bars and concert venues at night.

However, a judge lifted the liquor license suspension ruling last May because Chelsea's was not given due process before the trial.
