A recent report in The Harvard Crimson tells the tale of pizza proprietors finding a foe in the Allston Civic Association, who recently rejected a proposed neighborhood outpost from Stone Hearth Pizza Co. because of their intention to serve beer and wine. (Regina Pizzeria managed to slide into the ‘hood with a full bar.) If the neighbors are up in arms about the variety of pizza eaters that beer and wine will draw, will they also buck up against serving pizza to late-night drinkers?
That will be determined when Ecco Pizzeria (a newly proposed restaurant to be located at 1147 Commonwealth Ave) and Bravo Pizza go before the licensing board next Wednesday. Both restaurants are addressing the Hub’s late-night dining dearth head-on. In the movement to keep nocturnal carousers fed, Ecco is looking to open with a 2 a.m. license and Bravo wants to extend theirs from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m..
