The Boston Licensing Board yesterday approved a food-serving license for Joseph Adamo's 320 Cafe at 320 Spring St. in West Roxbury.
The location was previously home to the Spring Street Cafe, which closed in February.
"I want to bring it back to its glory days of serving great breakfasts and lunch," Adamo told the board at a hearing on Wednesday. Although he said he would focus on the first two meals of the day, the board granted him permission to stay open until 10 p.m.
Adamo was formerly executive chef at the Battery Wharf Hotel.
