Kingfish Hall's Liquor License May Be Going to Beer Works in Boston
It looks like a dining spot owned by a celebrity chef that closed in the spring of 2012 could be transferring its liquor license to a local group of restaurants and breweries.
A Licensing Board page on the City of Boston website indicates that the now-shuttered Kingfish Hall in Faneuil Hall has petitioned to transfer its All Alcoholic Beverages License to the location of Beer Works on Canal Street near North Station. Todd English, who was behind Kingfish Hall, has been in the news of late, as the Charlestown location of his Figs restaurant stopped serving alcohol last month and is apparently in the process of being able to serve once again. In addition, Isabelle's Curly Cakes, a Beacon Hill shop that he and his daughter run, closed for renovations last month, with plans for the place being unknown at this point in time. It had also been reported by Universal Hub last month that Rouse Co., which manages Faneuil Hall, is trying to recoup more than $800,000 in back rent and interest stemming from Kingfish Hall.
The hearing on the liquor license transfer will take place on Wednesday, February 12.
