The Ann Sather restaurant at 909 W. Belmont Ave. has been fined $2,000 for violating the state's indoor dining ban last year, ABC7Chicago.com reported.
Chicago Ald. Tom Tunney owns the restaurant, which was cited Dec. 4.
After being called out on social media, the 44th Ward alderman admitted to an "error in judgment" for allowing regular customers to dine in at the Belmont location despite the city's ban on indoor dining due to high rates of COVID-19.
On Feb. 25, Tunney released a statement about the fine, saying, "We have settled the matter and look forward to the further lessening of restrictions on restaurants, bars and other businesses as the COVID positivity rate continues to fall and more individuals are vaccinated."
There are other Ann Sather restaurants at 3415 N. Broadway and 1147 W. Granville Ave.
