The Boston Licensing Board last week looked into its bag of packie licenses, found it had one and awarded it to Shaw's, after determining its managers were of high moral character and had proved a public need for an aisle of beer, wine and spirits at its Star Market on Boylston Street.
Unfortunately for the owners of Zaz on River Street in Hyde Park, though, the board determined it had no spare beer-and-wine licenses for restaurants and so deferred action on its request for a license. The vote means Zaz can re-apply, on the unlikely event somebody simply returns a license to the board, or it can try to buy one on the open market - at a cost of upwards of $50,000 plus the board's annual license renewal fees.
