Two All-Alcohol Licenses Sought
Voters at Tuesday night's special town meeting authorize selectmen to ask Legislature for the licenses, for the Bangkok Thai Restaurant and for Bay State Commons.
Westborough selectmen will petition the state Legislature for two additional all-alcoholic beverages licenses: for the new Bangkok Thai Restaurant and for Bay State Commons.
Voters at Tuesday night's special town meeting approved two requests by petition, each one authorizing selectmen to request one of the licenses.
The Bangkok Thai Restaurant held a grand opening at 57 East Main St. last Dec. 8. The Mandarin Restaurant formerly occupied that site.
Voters passed over a second warrant article, also a petition, seeking to accomplish the same goal for the Bangkok Thai. The second article was not formatted properly for town meeting, Town Manager Jim Malloy noted in his statement in the warrant.
Westborough Patch blogger Gary Kelley did a restaurant review of the Bangkok Thai last Dec. 11.
Meanwhile, Bay State Commons requested three licenses during development, but received two due to the wording of the legislation granting Westborough them, selectmen Vice Chairman Ian Johnson explained.
Tavolino's Ristorante received that third license, he said.
