Trumbull police and the state Department of Consumer Protection cited two Trumbull eateries in liquor compliance operation.
They said on Monday that TEN Asian Bistro and the Old Towne Restaurant sold alcohol to minors, out of a total of 12 tested over the holiday weekend.
The permittees face administrative hearings before the state Liquor Commission that could result in a suspension of their liquor licenses.
“Compliance operations are consistently useful in helping us identify licensed or permitted locations that are selling alcoholic beverages to minors,” Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein said. He added that the compliance checks are not intended to hurt local businesses.
“Our goal is to find businesses that sell to minors and bring them into compliance with state liquor laws,” Rubenstein said. “If the volunteer youth are asked their age before making a liquor purchase, they will hand over their actual ID, and tell their true age.”
