El Centro Goes for Outdoor Seating With Liquor Service
License Board will consider allowing liquor service at a 14-seat patio along Shawmut Street.
Al fresco dining fans may have a new spot to enjoy dinner and a glass of wine on Shawmut Street.
El Centro goes before the city Licensing Board Wednesday to change its liquor license. The Mexican restaurant wants to serve liquor outdoors at a 14-seat sidewalk patio. The seasonal patio space would be open 10 a.m.-10p.m. each day.
EL Centro opened on Shawmut Avenue in late May last year to positive reviews on South End Patch and Yelp. It holds a seven-day malt and wine with liquor license, which must be amended to allow the outdoor seating.
