Bertucci's on College
I'd like to ask this same question. Its 7 years since this was originally posted, and the building of Bertucci's still sits looking the same way it has since moving to the neighbourhood 3 years ago.
I just called the number I found online and someone answered, and said that they are renovating and don't have a scheduled opening date. But seriously, how can a place spend numerous years on end renovating? Makes me wonder what's really going on inside the place right now. *shift eyes*
I too have always been curious about this place, and from what I can recall it was already papered up since the late 90's.
A quick search on www.chefdb.com states that Andrew Milne-Allen (co-owner of Zucca Trattoria) was briefly employed there in '96 as a consulting chef.
Seeing the previous posts, I looked up the number and yes someone answered. I first asked if this was the Bertucci's location and they confirmed. However, when I asked if they were opened, they just said that they were still closed, when I mentioned that I heard they were renovating, they just said "no, no" we are still closed.
Then they quickly got off the phone... this is indeed a mystery ...we need the power team of Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, the Pinkertons, and Scooby Doo to solve this one
