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.
