Black & Blue Steak and Crab Receives Liquor License

By: Rich Hosford

A new restaurant looking to move into Burlington received the right to sell alcohol at the Board of Selectmen meeting on Monday night.

The board granted an all-alcohol license to Black & Blue Steak and Crab, an upscale, full service restaurant specializing in steak and seafood fare, planning on taking up occupancy at the Marriott Residence Inn Hotel being built in The District.

The restaurant will be in a 7,500 square-foot location inside the hotel but will also have its own entrance from the outside. It will also have outdoor seating available for diners.

The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner and will also provide room service during the hours the kitchen is open. The hotel will provide breakfast separately.

The first Black & Blue Steak and Crab was opened in Rochester, New York and has grown to three locations in that state. This will be the first location outside of New York for the restaurant group.

There was also an application to name Charlie Fitzsimmons, one of the owners of the restaurants, as the a manager of record. He said at a previous meeting he has worked in the restaurant business since 1997 when the group opened their first restaurant. He further said he is TIPS certified and has an understanding of Burlington’s liquor laws. He said his first job in the business was as a bouncer, a position that provides a lot of experience in controlling the consumption of alcohol.
