  1. ZBA declined the necessary zoning variance because the Beacon Hill Civic Association opposed it. Abutters on Grove Street were supportive, but were trumped by the general Beacon Hill principle of not letting businesses, even ones beloved by Beacon Hill workers and residents, open on more purely residential blocks. A shame. I hope she finds another location soon.
