The tapas bar/record shop/book store started serving brunch for the first time last weekend.
Tres Gatos, the combination tapas bar/record shop/book store on Centre Street, has started serving brunch. The new service began last weekend, according to owner David Doyle. Brunch is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. "After brunch, we'll be offering a light bar menu from 2 to 5 p.m., then our normal dinner service will begin at 5:30 p.m.," Doyle wrote in an email to JP Patch. Here's a look at the new brunch menu — which includes items like chickpea pancakes. Tres Gatos joins a JP brunch scene that has more options than it used to.

Members of the JP Neighborhood Council Public Service Committee unanimously approved increased liquor and entertainment licenses for two Hyde Square area dining establishments: the new Sanctuary and the established Tres Gatos.
Hyde Square’s dining scene could get a lot livelier in the coming months. Enthusiastically supporting the area’s restaurant culture, the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council Public Service Committee unanimously approved licensing measures for two eateries during its monthly meeting Tuesday night at Curtis Hall. Boston: 'Sanctuary' City The people behind plans for a big new restaurant, christened "Sanctuary," aim to open in the new retail space on the Blessed Sacrament campus by the corner of Centre and Creighton. This American-style bistro would serve wine, beer, and some liquor. It would remain open until 1 a.m. on weekends under the committee’s recommendations.

The tapas bar/record shop/bookstore aims to add "cordials" to their liquor license, which would allow them to serve customers' number one request: Sangria.
Looking for a place to enjoy a pitcher of sangria with friends while you hear live music? Tres Gatos aims to be that place. The Centre Street tapas bar/record shop/bookstore seeks an expansion of its entertainment license to allow live performances. And it wants to add "cordials" to its liquor license, which would let them create batches of sangria. David Doyle, co-owner of Tres Gatos, says neighbors shouldn't worry about loud live music being played late into the night at his place. He plans to bring in acts like Brazilian jazz or a flamenco dancer and guitarist. "In my mind, there's a shortage of places where you can hear good, minimally-amplified music," Doyle told fellow business people at this month's JP Business and Professional …

The combination tapas restaurant, book shop, and record store is a great place to build up your album collection
There are likely no places other than Tres Gatos where you can order sheep’s milk cheese, confit of chicken thigh, and a nice glass of sherry, peruse a collection of books by Charles Bukowski, and flip through a chaotically arranged selection of new and used vinyl albums. A recent visit to the record bins at the back of the restaurant-book-music one-stop revealed plenty of gems, in the order they’re listed here: “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” soundtrack, “Best of Emmy Lou Harris,” “Listen” by A Flock of Seagulls, “Caught in the Act” by Grand Funk Railroad, “Frank Sinatra Sings Only for the Lonely,” and “Gaucho” by Steely Dan. And that’s just one small section of just one bin in the used section. Brand new releases – make that …
