Baltimore shuts down restaurants for license issues while operators complain of permitting delays from city agencies

March 17, 2022

More than half of the restaurants shuttered by the city’s health department so far this year have been cited, not for the usual offenses, such as rodents or lack of hot water, but for operating without a valid license or permit.
