Pedro Alarcon, who runs an eponymous Latin-American restaurant in Watertown, got approval today to open a new La Casa de Pedro at 505 Congress St.
La Casa de Pedro will feature roughly 390 seats in a series of differently themed areas under one roof, including a ceviche bar and a small bar area called the Jeep Willys. A seasonal patio will seat 66.
Alarcon needed board approval both to serve food and to buy the liquor license from the now closed Sweetwater Cafe in the Boylston Place alley.
He will also seek a separate entertainment license for live musicians.
