Lower Mills pizza place gets OK to expand

Pat's Pizza is a Lower Mills institution opened and operated by brothers Pat and Brendan Newell.

The Zoning Board of Appeal on Tuesday approved plans by Pat's Pizza, 2254 Dorchester Ave., to expand into a adjacent storefront to allow for more kitchen space and seats.

Proprietors Brendan and Patrick Newell needed board approval to add roughly 375 square feet of kitchen space and to expand the number of seats from 19 to 34.

The mayor's office and city councilors Frank Baker, Michael Flaherty and Annissa Essaibi George supported the proposal, with a neighborhood liaison from the mayor's office calling Pat's "a historic institution in a vibrant commercial district."

Nobody spoke against the proposal.
