The District’s ABC Board has predictably suspended Heritage India‘s liquor license following some deadly violence at the popular lunch spot turned late-night party palace over the weekend. Investigators say the event where the violence broke out was open to the public and had a cover charge, which, as the Examiner points out, “contradicts statements by Heritage India officials, who on Tuesday said the violence broke out while the restaurant was hosting a private party.” The operators of the Dupont Circle restaurant have until next Wednesday to appeal the board’s ruling.
