New restaurant cited in liquor sting

PEABODY — Marco’s Crepes & Pizza was open only five months before it was caught up in a liquor sting on May 19.

Representatives from the new Route 1 eatery are due to appear before the city’s Licensing Board tonight for a public hearing. During the sting last month, a minor was served without an employee seeing an ID, according to the violation report. The pizzeria is on Route 1 in front of SpringHill Suites.

The compliance checks or stings are randomly conducted during the year by Peabody police and underage assistants — often college students — at all 89 licensed establishments in the city. Board clerk Darryl McCarthy said the Licensing Board was notified of just one violation — Marco’s — uncovered in the sting.

Traditionally, the board imposes a warning for a first offense and strongly suggests businesses train or retrain their staff. Tonight’s hearing will be at 7 in the basement conference room at City Hall.
