The North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) voted 32-2 to support a request by the Golden Goose Café, 65 Atlantic Avenue that has applied to the City of Boston Licensing Board seeking a new malt, wine and cordials license with hours of operation from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
The Golden Goose Cafe opened last October with 36 seats, offering breakfast and lunch. Owner Steve DeAngelis intends to expand to the evening hours with an alcohol license.
“It has become apparent to us that breakfast and lunch will not make it,” said DeAngelis. The evening menu will be American, including steaks, seafood and shepard’s pie. All-day breakfast and lunch will continue to be offered at the cafe. The license will include a condition that alcohol be served only with food.
The Golden Goose Cafe will initially apply for a new license, but may have to purchase one to transfer should a new one not be available. NEWRA members spoke positively about the plan, noting their support for a business dedicated to serving residents.
