NEW RESTAURANT APPROVED: CV Cafe is a familiar name. There are places as far away as Canada and Australia with restaurants by the same name. But, Tuesday night selectmen approved a husband and wife team opening a 24-seat restaurant by that name in a space occupied by three now defunct eateries.
The Cafe is scheduled to open in the coming week at 2 Canton Street, which formerly housed a hot dog place, an Italian restaurant, and a Middle Eastern restaurant.
It's part of the Trackside Plaza near the train station. We wish them luck. In Steve Kelley, they have one of the best landlords in town.
FORMER PORTER STREET PUB: Selectmen last night, on a motion by Cynthia Walsh, ordered the owner of the former Porter Street Pub property, at 26-28 Porter Street, to submit paperwork within 30 days for transfering his liquor license granted to him in the spring of 2010, or risk losing it.
The owner, David Berteletti, wrote the Board to say he had a Stoughton resident interested in running a new business there.
Selectmen John Anzivino and John Stagnone supported Walsh's motion. John Anderson thought that Berteletti should have had at least 60 days, and voted against it. Selectman Steve Anastos wasn't present.
