LOL.

So, what does this mean regarding their city and alcohol licenses? Change of name doesn't necessarily mean the name on the licenses will change, right? But ...

They'll need to file something with the licensing board in any case, but if it's the same owners and just a name change, it's a non-hearing, just paperwork, but if there's any change in ownership, financing (they pledge the license to a new bank) or the basics of how the place operates (more tables, say, or a change in hours), then they'll have to go through the whole hearing process.

In other restaurant news , Boston to assign restaurants letter grades

''Boston plans to soon start assigning letter grades to publicly rate the cleanliness and food safety practices for all restaurants and other food-service vendors in the city, giving diners a visible new tool to confidently choose where to eat.

Officials hope to launch a pilot version of the grading system in early January. For the first year, restaurant letter grades — either an A, B, or C — would be posted online only.''

I wish it would come back!

But I wonder if the Lily Pulitzer South End crowd or the trust fund Lindsay Lohan look-alike South End crowds would appreciate it. They tend to equate expensive with quality. It's all about ridiculous "small plates" (why does that trend still exist?) and charcuterie boards (which most of them can't even pronounce).

Are those artisanal craft-cocktails curated?

Multiple shots, actually. It wasn't good enough. You don't miss Howard Johnson's would reopen on Boylston, do you?

You prove my point. Not good enough for pretentious people who probably don't know their asses from their elbows.
