The Boston Licensing Board has rejected a request from Amelia's Taqueria to stay open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
The vote came after a hearing at which the mayor's office and the Allston Civic Association said there was no need for tacos to be served in the area later than the take-out place's current 2 a.m. closing time, even if the T does now run until 3 a.m.
Mayor Walsh this week announced a task force to look at what parts of the city could support later hours at local restaurants and clubs.
