Boston Licensing Board Chairwoman Nicole Murati Ferrer lambasted the owner of Young Kong, 300 Centre St., today for being found open at 2:20 a.m. on Aug. 3 - an hour and 20 minutes past the place's licensed 1 a.m. closing time.
Owner Linda Pan said she had to leave early that night because her son fell ill at home. With only one car in the family, her parents remained behind at the restaurant - and continued to take orders even as BPD Lt. Det. Eric Eversley was standing at the counter, writing up the citation that resulted in today's hearing. Eversley noted that menus on the counter showed a closing time of 1:30 a.m.
