Prince Frederick, MD – A little bit of Thailand is coming to Southern Calvert County and you can now enjoy it with your favorite beverage. The Thai Seaside Restaurant was granted a Class B “On Sale” Beer, Wine and Liquor license by the Board of License Commissioners of Calvert County (the Liquor Board) at the three-member panel’s Aug. 23 meeting. Co-license holders Kamochat S. Wood and Parit Yuwapanichsampan answered the questions from the board, albeit with some terminology difficulties. There was also some question about whether the restaurant—located on H.G. Trueman Road—had been issued a use and occupancy permit from the county.

“They have a use permit,” said board attorney David Weigel, who added that board secretary Linda Tayman would double-check the business’ status with the Department of Planning and Zoning.

The restaurant held a soft opening earlier this month.

In other business, the Liquor Board approved an application for a change of stockholder/officer for Sunderland Liquors. The store on Dalrymple Road holds a Class A “Off Sale,” Beer, Wine and Liquor license. The new stockholder, Diljaan Singh Melhi, resides in Prince George’s County. He will own 90 percent of Sunderland Liquors Inc.’s stock. The company will retain its current resident agent, who owns 10 percent of the business, lives in Calvert County and has worked at the store for five years. Arscott reminded Melhi that a Calvert County resident had to be listed on the license in order for the business to stay open. “If she quits on you, you’ve got to close,” said Arscott.
