Liquor logjam ends: Restaurants in Hyde Park, Roslindale get liquor licenses

The Boston Licensing Board has granted full liquor licenses to a proposed Italian restaurant on Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park and an under-construction bistro on South Street in Roslindale - and voted to let an existing Dominican restaurant on Fairmount Avenue expand from beer and wine to all types of liquor. Antonio's Bacaro on Fairmount and Derna's on South Street got new licenses, and Rincon Caribeno an expanded license, under a new state law that will give Boston 75 liquor licenses over the next three years for neighborhoods outside Boston Proper and the waterfront.

Roslindale Square landlord says meat market, restaurant won't be forced out if their building is expanded

Tony DeBenedictis (l) and Vincent Marino. Through his lawyer, landlord Vincent Marino said tonight he has no plans to force out Tony's Market and Redd's in Rozzie if he gets zoning approval to add two stories to the building he owns at 4254-4257 Washington St. in Roslindale Square. But that reassurance alone was not enough for residents at a hastily called meeting on the proposal tonight at the Roslindale Community Center - or for the mayor's office and City Councilor Tim McCarthy, both of whom said they would ask the Zoning Board of Appeals to defer action on the request at a hearing on Nov. 25.

Meeting Monday to discuss landlord's plans for Tony's/Redd's building in Roslindale

Vincent Marino wants to add two floors to the Washington Street building that houses Tony's Market and Redd's in Rozzie. A meeting that starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Roslindale Community Center on Monday will be residents' only chance to discuss the proposal before it goes before the Zoning Board of Appeals on Nov. 25 - and will apparently be where Tony DeBenedictis of Tony's finds out what the proposal means for his store.
