But the burgeoning mini-city now erupting in the Seaport area has plenty of room for caffeination. The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to let a Dunkin' Donuts franchisee open a new Dunkin' Donuts at 405-409 D St., as part of a new residential development.
The proposed coffee outlet, which will have no seats, was supported by the mayor's office and the offices of city councilors Steve Murphy, Michelle Wu and Michael Flaherty at a hearing this morning. Nobody spoke in opposition.
Karen Simao, attorney for franchisee Sean Sullivan said she probably didn't have to explain the concept behind the outlet to anybody from Massachusetts, but did anyway, just in case: "You go in and order coffee, donuts, sandwiches, anything of that nature, and it is consumed off premises."
