Cafeteria, which shut last December, hopes to re-open soon, its attorney told the Boston Licensing Board yesterday.
"The general concept will be remaining the same," attorney Marci Costa said of the 279A Newbury St. restaurant.
But owner George Aboujaoude will be changing the name - Costa said to what is still undecided. She added he will be adding 22 more seats to the restaurant, which is why she was before the licensing board - it needs to approve changing the restaurant's license to show the extra seats.
"He's just really excited to gt this operation back up and running," she said. She did not give a specific date for re-opening.
The board agreed to defer any action until after Nov. 12, when Aboujaoude is scheduled to meet with the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay on the proposal.
