The Parrot Bar & Grille has been cleared to reopen for business.
The Cataumet eatery was given the go-ahead by the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission in an email dated Tuesday, March 30. In the email, the ABCC’s administrative assistant and records access officer Patricia Hathaway stated that the commission had reversed its earlier indefinite suspension order.
The commission’s order of reversal noted that on March 25 the owners of The Parrot Bar & Grille had submitted a written request asking for reconsideration of the suspension. That same day, the ABCC reported, the commission received a notice of approval from the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards.
“Based on the evidence presented, the commission reconsiders and reverses its prior order of INDEFINITE SUSPENSION of the license of Batman Corp. d/b/a The Parrot Bar & Grille effective forthwith,” the ABCC order stated.
The Parrot Bar & Grill was shut down indefinitely on March 24. The restaurant was cited by the ABCC multiple violations of COVID-19 regulations. The commission’s notice listed five violations of COVID-19 regulations that occurred on January 22. The violations included a customer or employee “failing to wear a mask or cloth face covering over their mouth and nose when in a public location.”
