SLA Suspends ‘Noree Thai Bazaar’ on Grand Street for Coronavirus Violations

Posted on: August 26th, 2020 at 5:01 am by

Lower East Side establishments continue to act in defiance of state coronavirus mandates. And ultimately pay the price.

Newcomer Noree Thai Bazaar on Grand Street is the latest to fall victim to State Liquor Authority enforcement. The agency suspended the bar’s liquor license after investigators paid a visit last Friday.

According to an update from Governor Cuomo on Monday, “investigators with the state’s multi-agency task force observed three patrons consuming alcohol inside the premises and two employees without facial coverings, in violation of the Governors’ Executive Orders.”

Overall, the SLA has suspended a total of 162 liquor licenses for pandemic-related violations, Cuomo said in a release Monday afternoon.

Noree Thai Bazaar opened at 274 Grand Street in November 2018, and is owned by Andy Lau, (Gunbae, Bonchon Chicken).
