Its totally been a problem, why does it need to take a year for every small measure to go into effect? said Chris Lin, owner of Seven Star Street Bistro in Roslindale. The time they took could make or break a company like mine, it seems very unfair. At the end of 2015 the City Council voted to eliminate a citywide ban on bringing your own booze to restaurants, and last April the Licensing Board voted to amend its rules to allow BYOB restaurants under some conditions. But it has yet to lay those conditions out, and theres a need for those licenses now, restaurateurs said. The neighborhoods are very much in need of this, the timing of the implementation is key, said Gary Webster, who owns Down Home Delivery in Dorchester and said he would have applied immediately for a license if he were able. It would be wonderful for people to have the opportunity to sit down and bring their own bottle of wine or a good six-pack. Anything that limits options for growth at this time is not good for business. Mayoral spokeswoman Nicole Cavella said the Licensing Board is set to hold a public hearing on Jan. 18 to get community feedback before creating rules and regulations, and was optimistic regulations would be voted on by the end of the month. But in the restaurant world, survival is often a week-to-week business, Lin said. The urgency is not realized, Lin said, adding that a majority of restaurants close within their first year.
