Brad Dalbeck of Legendary Restaurant Group (the folks behind Max and Dylan’s and Scollay Square) appeared before the Boston Licensing Board on behalf of Pappa Gallo’s, reports Universal Hub. Pappa Gallo’s, attempting to open at 283 Summer Street, would be a “New York style hip, trendy Mexican restaurant” with a “sophisticated lounge area” and “interpretations of freshly prepared Mexican cuisine,” and would stay open until 2 a.m. Sounds a lot like Dos Caminos and Rosa Mexicano.
Here’s the weird thing: Pappa Gallo’s hasn’t even signed a lease yet: Dalbeck says he won’t move forward with the project unless he can get a liquor license. For his part, BLB chair Daniel Pokaski didn’t seem wildly enthused, indicating that the Board wouldn’t grant a license unless a lease had been signed, and expressing concern about noise.
