Town Counsel Juliana Rice said a three-day suspension conforms to the town’s policy on first-time alcohol compliance violations.

The suspension will be enacted in September, when the restaurant will be unable to sell alcoholic beverages from Wednesday to Friday, though dates are yet to be determined. Midami will still be allowed to sell food.

The vote to suspend Midami’s license for three days was unanimous.
