Tequila Mexican Grill wants to serve food until late into the night, but the city ain't hearing it. The restaurant currently closes at 7pm and seeks to remain open until 4:30am, thereby joining the slim number of local eateries serving at that hour. The Metro reports that a representative from the mayor's office and a police sergeant as well as neighborhood residents have all voiced their disapproval. The mayor's office is open to compromising and is considering a closing time of 2am, which the restaurant says it would accept. One thing Boston is not known for is a trove of late night dining options, and it sounds like things aren't going to change any time soon. For input from vexed, would-be 3am burrito consumers, see the comments thread at UniversalHUB.
