The Boston Licensing Board next week considers a deal in which the landlord of the defunct Morton's Steakhouse on Boylston Street would sell its liquor license to Boston Beer Works on Brookline Avenue so that Boston Beer Works can in turn sell its beer and wine license to Mei Mei on Park Drive.
The move means Morton's will be off the hook for the $216,000 in back rent it racked up before shutting down, Boston Beer Works will be able to add hard liquor to the beer and Mei Mei will be able to add beer and wine to its Chinese food after being rejected for a license because the board had none left in its desk drawers due to the state limit on the number of alcohol licenses in Boston.
The board's hearings start at 10 a.m. on Wednesday in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
