Brownstoner has the latest details of a pending lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board regarding the wine store within the Garces Trading Company.
Tria’s Jon Myerow, one of a dozen or so restaurateurs involved in the suitÂ sums it up as “the issue is that of all restaurants being able to compete on a level playing field. In no other state has the alcohol governing body entered the restaurant industry to compete against the very businesses it regulates, all while partnering with hand-selected competitors.”
Just this past weekend we mulled over the arrangement as we recommended the Trading Company for a reasonable lunch. We couldn’t help but think that the consumer’s advantage of being able to purchase wine on site should not be a disadvantage to another proprietor.
It will be interesting to watch how this plays out.
