WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) — The liquor license for the Andiamo banquet hall in Warren will be suspended for 21 days after the Michigan Liquor Control Commission found violations of state pandemic orders.

The banquet hall reportedly hosted a wedding reception and violated the orders by allowing an indoor gathering and not requiring face masks.

Andiamo restaurants are run by L.V. Management Inc., which will pay $600 in fines after reaching a settlement with MLCC. The company acknowledged two violations of the orders.

L.V. Management Inc. is owned by Joe and Rosalie Vicari, who own the additional Andiamo locations in the metro Detroit area. The Vicaris previously called on Governor Gretchen Whitmer to re-instate indoor dining, floating the idea of a mass group of restaurant and bar owners defying state COVID-19 shutdown orders.

However, that idea was short-lived, as lawyers advised against the idea.
