Boston Police report several incidents over the past year of people having their purse stolen or picked at the 289 Huntington Ave. outlet.

The Boston Licensing Board on Thursday considers whether to sanction the restaurant for an incident on Oct. 14 in which a woman had her wallet taken out of her pocketbook.

Panera Cares goes before the Boston Licensing Board tomorrow for permission to open at 3 Center Plaza, across from City Hall.

The new Panera, which could be open within a couple weeks if granted a food-serving license, will have a menu similar to other Panera outlets, but instead of fixed prices, diners at the non-profit restaurant will get to pay what they think their meal is worth - or pay nothing at all, if they have no money (people who don't pay can volunteer time, instead).

Licensing-board hearings start at 10 a.m. in the board's eighth-floor hearing room at City Hall.
