In a vote of 27-4, the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) voted in favor of a proposed expansion of Monica’s Trattoria at 67-69 Salem Street. Jorge Mendoza, represented by Attorney William Ferullo, presented for the Mendoza Family regarding a request to the Licensing Board to amend the description of the license to add an adjoining room and basement space. The applicant has leased the adjacent property at 69 Prince Street, most recently occupied by El Triumfo, Grezzo and Sage Restaurant before that. There is no proposed change in closing hours of 11 pm weekdays and 12 am on weekends. The total number of seats is expected to be approximately 50 in the expanded restaurant.
