Following the discovery of a “Closed for Remodeling” sign at Dunton House restaurant at 11 West Davis Street in downtown Arlington Heights, the Village of Arlington Heights Building and Life Safety Department stuck an orange STOP WORK ORDER sticker on the front door last Friday.
The inspector who applied the STOP WORK ORDER neglected to fill in the DESCRIPTION OF WORK — a blank line on the form. The sticker also claims, “This construction is in violation of the building code.” The STOP WORK ORDER, dated Friday, March 11, 2022, was signed by John Landers and authorized by Jorge Torres, Director of the Building and Life Safety Department.
Dunton House was sold by owners Bill and Nancy Tsapralis during the Spring of 2016. According to Nancy Tsapralis, the restaurant was sold to “our chef, assistant chef, a cook and a chef from another restaurant.” The new owners took over operations at Dunton House Restaurant on April 1, 2016.
Bill and Nancy Tsapralis had successfully operated the restaurant for 19 years. The restaurant was established by a previous owner or owners in 1969.
