The owner of Tres Gatos is buying the Centre Street Cafe and plans some renovations and menu changes before it re-opens this fall, under the same name.
David Doyle told the Boston Licensing Board this morning that he's working on an Italian dinner menu with a Mediterranean-influenced lunch menu as well, featuring such things as homemade pastas. However, he said he is planning no changes to the weekend brunch menu, which has long had patrons lining up on Centre Street.
Doyle is buying the restaurant from Felicia Sanchez.
He needs licensing-board approval to purchase her beer and wine license. At the hearing, representatives of the mayor and city councilors Matt O'Malley, Steve Murphy and Michelle Wu endorsed the sale.
Michael Reiskind of the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council agreed, praising Doyle's work at Tres Gatos and the former Rhythm and Muse.
Doyle will continue to own Tres Gatos.
