Pig Out: Au Pied De Cochon Flips the Switch on 24/7 Due to Late Night Liquor License Issues
It's official. As of last Sunday (August 30,) the Au Pied de Cochon outpost on South Beach is the only one company-wide unable to sustain a 24 hour business.
According to the general manager, the restaurant was unable to secure late night authorization for its liquor license and found that staying open in the wee hours was no longer financially viable for the business without alcohol sales.
Au Pied will now focus on its lunch and dinner service.
Short Order thinks management should also pay attention to its website, where the 24/7 message goes unchanged.
New hours are as follows:
Mon - Fri, 11:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. (lunch)
Mon - Wed and Sun, 5 p.m. - midnight, and Thurs - Sat, 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. (dinner)
Sun, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. (brunch)
It's unclear at the moment why Au Pied has been unable to secure late night hours for its license, but the attempt is apparently ongoing. Time will tell if its traditional hours will return.
