The Zoning Board of Appeals agreed to defer a hearing until May 7 on a proposal by the Russian Benevolent Society to turn its Linden Street facility into a 450-seat restaurant with a 90-seat patio and entertainment.
The move lets the owners of what is now a for-profit concern just off Cambridge Street meet with the Allston Civic Association and local police. In recent days, nearby residents have begun organizing against the proposed expansion in what started out as a small social group for Russian emigres that was closed most of the time into a seven-day restaurant. Opponents point to issues of potential noise and inebriated patrons late at night.
