Industriel Restaurant has re-opened for business today after being shutdown for 15 days for a violation of its liquor license.
Back on March 27th, DTLAexplorer first reported about signs posted on the front door and windows of the restaurant at 6th and Grand Avenue that read, “Industriel is temporarily closed. We will reopen on Friday, April 10th. Sorry for the inconvenience. Looking forward to cook for you in the near future.” The next day, a new sign appeared on the door. This one from the State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The restaurant’s alcoholic beverage license had been suspended! On April 9th, DTLAexplorer finally received a response from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control as to why Industriel’s license was suspended: the response, “This license was suspended because the licensee pled guilty in Superior Court to a crime of Moral Turpitude.” Several sources tell us that the restaurant was busted for serving under age drinkers, but that has not been officially confirmed.
Industriel is one of my favorite DTLA restaurants. I’m happy it is back open for business. See you at the bar (unless you are under 21).
