Doc’s Long Wharf, Volle Nolle & Nonna’s on Licensing Board Agenda

On next week’s agenda for the Boston Licensing Board, there are three licensing items in the North End / Waterfront area: Doc’s Long Wharf, Volle Nolle and Nonna’s Market.

Doc’s Long Wharf is looking to transfer an unused alcohol license to a South Boston “Paramount” establishment. Doc’s was the subject of the legal case where the Superior Court Ruled in Favor of “North End Ten” Against the Boston Redevelopment Authority to license a restaurant on the end of Long Wharf without legislation. The following is on the July 27, 2011 agenda:

Despite support from both neighborhood groups, NEWNC and NEWRA, Volle Nolle on Hanover Street was previously denied a beer and wine license by the Licensing Board because none were available. The sandwich shop is returning next week for the same request.

Although Hordon Health is now operating in the former Nonna’s location on North Street, the Licensing Board has placed the establishment on its “violations” agenda for July 26, 2011. In March 2011, the Board gave Nonna’s a 90-day extension. It was speculated the license might be transfered to the White Hen Pantry on Hanover St., but that establishment has yet to apply for a retail alcohol license.
