Margaret Pimentel is all set to open her Achilitos Taqueria, in the new building at 38 Hyde Park Ave., where YMAA used to be, but both the mayor's office and the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council asked the Boston Licensing Board today to defer action on her request for a food-serving license until after she can meet with the council to discuss her proposal.
Council board member Michael Reiskind told the board he is not expecting any problems with the taqueria, but said the council wants the meeting because the eatery is surrounded by numerous residences, including on the upper floors of the new building it's in. He said the council will hold a meeting on May 1.
Pimentel asked for a license letting her operate between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. In addition to tacos, burritos and bowls, she said she would also offer Mexican-style light breakfasts - and a juice bar.
