The Boston Licensing Board yesterday ordered a two-day suspension for the Haven, 2 Perkins St., because of an incident last month in which a police sergeant on routine patrol found the place open at 3:10 a.m. with the owner and a friend with a glass of beer inside.

A Boston Food Diary reports on a trip to the Haven, the new haggis place in Jamaica Plain:

The Boston Licensing Board yesterday voted to grant a beer-and-wine license to Wee Angel, a Scottish bistro proposed for the site of the old Zon's in Hyde Square. The pub is also seeking a license from a separate city board for acoustic music. More on Wee Angel.
The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to approve a beer and wine license for the city's first Scottish pub, which would move into the old Zon's space at 2 Perkins St. in Hyde Square.
Owner Jason Waddleton said that among Wee Angel's offerings would be both meat and vegetarian versions of the traditional Scottish dish haggis. Haggis traditionally consists of a variety of an animal's innards, cooked in its stomach or a lining for three hours with oatmeal and spices. He said he's also trying to convince his chef to try haggis burgers.
