Shuttered Upper Crust in West Roxbury could re-open as a new pizza place

The Boston Licensing Board next week hears a request from the owners of the former franchise of the former pizza chain at 1727 Centre St. to sell the place - and its liquor license - to James Loftus, owner of the neighboring Porter Cafe. who proposes to re-open it as Parlor Pizza.

Loftus will seek board permission to extend the eatery's closing time from 11 p.m. to midnight and to remove restrictions on the liquor and food-serving licenses that would prohibit him from installing a bar and that would require table service by a waiter or waitress.

Both the West Roxbury Neighborhood Council and West Roxbury Main Streets support the proposal.

The board's regular hearings start at 10 a.m. on Wednesday in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
