Boston Licensing Board Approves Mediterranean Flavors to Replace Crystal Restaurant Garage Room

Overview: The Boston Licensing Board recently considered a range of license applications, with the most notable topic being the transfer of a liquor license from the Crystal Restaurant Garage Room to Ken and Co Inc, doing business as Jana Grill and Bar. Attorney Mike Ross represented the applicant, proposing a new Mediterranean concept that would reduce the indoor premise by 65% and remove several existing license conditions. Surin Kiran, the owner and operator of the Janna Grill and Bar in Watertown, is expected to manage the new location. Support for the proposal was expressed by the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services and the Alon Civic Association, with the latter commending the board for its attention to the community’s concerns regarding the location’s history of violations.

Overview: The Boston Licensing Board, in a recent meeting, addressed multiple incidents and license requests from various local establishments, with a notable violation issued to Royale nightclub for an assault and battery incident. The board highlighted a communication breakdown between staff and management and rejected the defense of self-defense due to insufficient evidence, underlining the necessity of timely incident reporting.

Overview: The Boston Licensing Board recently tackled a series of incidents involving local establishments, ranging from assault and battery cases to overcrowding during a Red Sox home opener. One notable issues discussed was the overcrowding at Switch Entertainment Inc., doing business as Loretta’s Last Call, where the number of patrons exceeded the establishment’s licensed capacity during an event. Additionally, the board reviewed incidents at various venues, including Royale nightclub, where an alleged assault and battery raised concerns about staff training and management.

Overview: In a recent Boston Licensing Board hearing, Game On Fenway LLC, doing business as Game On, faced allegations for hosting an 18-plus event without notifying the Licensing Division, a violation of the division’s rules and regulations. The incident, dated April 18, 2024, was brought to the board’s attention after a local college reported concerns following an incident involving an underage student’s injury at the venue and claims of underage drinking.

Overview: The Boston Licensing Board recently convened to address several incidents involving licensed establishments as well as a host of transactional matters concerning license changes and transfers. The meeting was marked by decisions on assault and battery cases, with one establishment receiving a violation due to overcapacity and hindering enforcement agents. Additionally, there was a discussion on a license cancellation hearing for the Russian Benevolence Society, which failed to cure a defect in their license. The board also handled an extensive list of transactional hearings, approving various license changes and amendments with a focus on community impact.
