Four of six restaurants cited in March for serving alcohol to a minor have had their alcohol permits suspended for a week.

The most recent two, Boure´and City Grocery had signs posted on their doors Monday by the Mississippi Alcohol Beverage Commission that their permits to sell alcohol are suspended from 10 a.m. July 1 to 10 a.m. July 8.

The sting occurred on March 29 when ABC agents conducted a Sale to Minor Detail in Oxford after receiving law enforcement complaints, according to a press release from ABC.

The detail involved using a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old who were working under the direction and supervision of ABC agents.

According to the press release, released in April, seven Oxford restaurants were checked. When asked for identification the minors showed the clerks their actual driver’s license that identified them as under that age of 21.

All but one restaurant, Ajax, served the minor. According to ABC, four of the servers checked the ID, but served the minor anyway.

The six restaurants cited for serving the minor are City Grocery, Boure´, Buffalo Wild Wings, El Mariachi, El Agave and South Depot.

Buffalo Wild Wings and El Agave’s permits were suspended for a week in June.

El Mariachi and South Depot have not yet had their permits suspended.

Also on City Grocery’s door was a notification that the restaurant would be closed through July 8 for “rest and renovations.”

Boure´ is closed today and Thursday according to owner Stefano Capomazza, for “meetings and cleaning” and will be back open Friday.
