The Boston Licensing Board today approved requests from Whole Foods to offer patio seating to shoppers who can't wait to get home to eat their meals and to sell the sort of beer, wine and spirits Whole Foods customers would expect.
At a hearing yesterday, a Whole Foods attorney said the chain plans on 103 indoor and 112 outdoor seats at the store being built as part of the Ink Block development on the old Boston Herald site on Harrison Avenue between Herald and Traveler streets.
The board also granted the chain a retail package-store license. The attorney said the store would not be selling anything distasteful like nips.
