The owner of Fazenda Coffee Roasters across from the Forest Hills T stop is seeking an all-alcohol license with which to change the coffeehouse into a restaurant specializing in "tastings" - menus that pair particular drinks with a changing roster of food items.
At a Boston Licensing Board hearing this morning, Adam Barnosky, attorney for owner Phillip Kruta, said the proposed Brassica Kitchen and Cafe would keep morning coffee and pastry service.
Barnosky said Kruta has already run several tastings events under one-day liquor licenses.
The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council gave its approval, as did several elected officials.
"Forest Hills is undergoing a large construction project and needs all the help it can get at this time," Michael Reiskind, chairman of the neighborhood council's public-service committee, told the board.
The board votes on the request tomorrow.
