The Boston Licensing Board holds a hearing next week on plans to convert long empty space at 45 Province St. into a pizza restaurant called Strada 45.
The building's developers got a full-service liquor license from the board in 2008. The board rescinded the license in 2011, but the developers got it back in an appeal to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.
John DeSimone will explain his wood-fired pizza concept to the board at a hearing on Wednesday. Board hearings start at 10 a.m. in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
Post updated to withdraw a reference to the restaurant chain DeSimone said on his LinkedIn page that he was the owner of, but wasn't.
