From the April 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
The grand opening of Mayfair & Pine (2218 Wisconsin Ave.) has been delayed a few weeks, says chef and co-owner Emily Sprissler. “We really wanted to be open by the last week of April,” she says. “Now we’re looking at the first or second week of May.” Though Sprissler plans few changes to the old Town Hall property, the process of securing approvals from city agencies including the Department of Health and the Fire Marshal is taking longer than anticipated. “There are a lot of parties involved,” she says.
One potential source of delay was an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration investigation regarding a New Year’s Eve party at the old Town Hall. The event featured a DJ, but the restaurant neglected to apply for permission to provide entertainment, according to an ABRA investigation. On March 2, the Town Hall owners’ group paid a $250 fine to resolve the matter, clearing the way for a license transfer to Mayfair & Pine. Town Hall moved to its current location, 2340 Wisconsin Ave., in early January.
