New York State issues a warning to a restaurant that has started selling 25-cent cocktails
The State Liquor Authority of New York has warned a restaurant after it began offering 25-cent martinis and Manhattans to lure customers.
In the West Village, Anton's Cafe and Wine Bar announced earlier this month that it would be offering 25-cent martinis and Manhattans every weekday lunch during January.
“Not a typo. Actually $0.25 for a full cocktail. And stay tuned for the imminent return of bottled cocktails…delivery and take away. Cheers!” the wine bar said on Instagram.
The reduced beverages offer, on the other hand, appeared to be in breach of a State Liquor Authority (SLA) statute prohibiting establishments from giving free alcohol or discounted drinks that are less than half the original cost.
On Saturday, Anton’s chef and co-owner Nick Anderer said that the discounted drinks offer had come to an abrupt end after he was made aware of the violation.
