The owner of Montgomery restaurant has agreed to a request by Village President Matt Brolley to suspend its liquor license for 10 days following an incident Sunday evening where two people were shot.
Brolley released a statement Monday, Jan. 7, regarding the incident that took place at Sunday evening at the restaurant in the 2000 block of Orchard Road.
Brolley's statement reads as follows:
"Regarding the unfortunate situation that resulted in the discharge of a firearm at Rosati’s last evening, we have long championed restaurants that offer a safe, family-friendly dining atmosphere and this type of activity will not be tolerated in our community. This morning, the owner agreed to my request for an immediate 10-day suspension of their liquor license. This will give all parties adequate time to review the situation and determine if, and under what circumstances, future liquor sales would be appropriate at this location. At this time, the owner and their staff have been in full cooperation. I want to commend Chief Phil Smith and our Police Officers for their continued efforts to keep us safe.
