La Galleria 33 Restaurant Receives NEWRA Support for All-Alcohol License [Video]

La Galleria 33 Restaurant at 123-125 Salem Street has applied to the Licensing Board for a new C.V. 7-Day All-Alcohol Beverages license to replace the existing Wine & Malt Beverages License. The licensed closing time will remain 11:00 PM, 7 days. No other change to the business or business operation is proposed.

Rita Moran presented with her attorney at the January 9th meeting of the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association. Ms. Moran said there would be no bar (currently a license condition) and that food would continue to be served with alcohol. Sisters Rita and Lisa Moran have owned and operated La Galleria 33 for eight years. In 2011, NEWRA had previously supported a similar request for an all-alcohol license across the street at La Familglia Giorgio’s Restaurant.

NEWRA voted 28-4 to support the application.

  1. A year ago this group voted against Gennaro’s 5 North Square for a new all alcohol license. What makes Galleria 33 entitled to NEWRA’s support while other restaurants are not?

    1. If I recall correctly, Gennaro’s had hoped to serve liquor without food and until 1:00 a.m., potentially attracting “drinkers” rather than just diners having a drink with their meals. Fearing late-night noise, the neighbors balked.
