Peabody Restaurants To Get Licenses

The Fire Bull Restaurant in Peabody received Licensing Board approval and now only needs approval from state liquor licensing authorities to serve a full bar at 5 Central St. instead of only beer and wine.

Alfred D. Rizzo, the manager at Fire Bull, appeared before the city’s Licensing Board Monday night for a hearing on the restaurant’s application for one of four new full liquor licenses the city is now authorized for thanks to the results of the 2010 U.S. Census.

The new beer and wine license Peabody received under the census was approved Monday night for China Corner, which is located at 9 Peabody Sq. The Chinese restaurant opened under new ownership in 2010.
