The Boston Licensing Board next week hears a request by the owner of Cristelle's, 5268 Washington St., to sell the restaurant and its beer and wine license to Fadi Metri for a Middle Eastern restaurant called Fairouz.
Along with the sale, Metri will seek permission to expand the alcohol license to include liqueurs.
Al Wadi, which offers Lebanese fare, opened on VFW Parkway in 2010. Cristelle's sold pizza and subs, along with a few Greek specialties.
West Roxbury has one of the area's largest communities of Arab Christians.
The board's hearings begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
