J.P. Bullfeathers has closed and told state liquor regulators it is being sold.
In a letter dated July 7, Bullfeathers put the license “in safekeeping” with the authority, “indicating that they were in the process of selling the business,” said New York State Liquor Authority spokesman William Crowley.
The restaurant had been open at 1010 Elmwood Ave. since the 1970s. Passers-by have reported it closed for several weeks.
The liquor license law says that establishments that will be closed for two weeks or more should return their license to the SLA, Crowley explained. Typically that happens when license holders are selling the business or doing renovations, he said.
Calls to the restaurant last week were not returned.
In June, the SLA board fined J.P. Bullfeathers $3,000 for a sale to a minor on April 17, Crowley said. The penalty was due July 24.
