State Liquor Authority Announces $500,000 Fine, Six Month Suspension

On March 25, 2014, the State Liquor Authority Full Board accepted a global settlement from licensee Eataly NY LLC principals, including Lidia Bastianich, Joe Bastianich, Mario Batali, Oscar Farinetti and Luca Filangieri.  The penalty included a $500,000 fine, a six month suspension of the Eataly Vini wine shop license and removal of Lidia Bastianich from the Eataly Vini license. The charges stem from an investigation which revealed the principals all held interests in wine manufacturing while also holding retail licenses in New York State.
