NEWNC, the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council, voted 4-5 to oppose zoning relief to allow a second floor addition to 78-80 Salem Street by Chris Young. The proposed addition would be used to expand the existing first floor restaurant, “Trattoria Pulcinella, Mozzarella Bar E Ristorante.”  NEWNC votes are advisory to the Boston Zoning Board of Appeals.

  1. how can this place already be thinking of expansion? i hate to say it but everytime i walk by it’s almost 100% empty. are they just looking to develop and flip?

  2. I like the idea but maybe they should have a different restaurant there. That building has always looked out of place being only one floor.

  3. I think Chris Young is a wonderful human being, but I
    have to agree with Andy, they are not doing any business
    now and why would it warrant a second floor?

    Why not put the shrubs & greenery on the second floor
    for appearance sake? If this property is sold somewhere
    down the line what happens then?

    I am still puzzled how Pellini on Little Prince St. got
    away with putting the Restrooms from the street floor to
    the basement. What happened to Handicap Accessibility?

    Is the City this corrupt for the love of money? It is
    positively frightening what is happening to this quaint
    neighborhood. Everyone is always looking to do more
    and the residents seem to be thrown aside like dirty
    socks. Everyone should go on the hands and knees
    and pray that some miracle takes place to save this
    Neighborhood. Boston got picked for the drunkenest
    city in the U.S. in 2011, and now I heard they got picked for the Most Drug Addicts in the U.S.

    • CORRECTION The restaurant on Little Prince St. is

      Pellino’s not Pellini’s that removed restrooms from

      street level and put restrooms in basement. Was this

      legal? There is no handicap accessibility.
