Campo di Fiore Harvard Square - closed??
Does anyone know why Campo di Fiore in Harvard Square closed? Husband went by on Friday, found it closed up tight, and the sign gone. The security guard said it was closed for good. This is a loss to the Harvard Square lunch scene!
It's true, it's closed... here's an email I received from them on June 30:
Unfortunately Yes, it has closed for ever....Impossible to renew the lease
at the going rate...we wish you the best and if you miss our food please
visit us at our new BU Boston location at 580 Commonwealth Avenue.
Is this the same company that opened last year at BU? I keep meaning to try it but haven't been around there at meal time.

If it is, it doesn't help for Harvard Sq lunches but at least it might give you a destination for your favorites.
I heard that HU raised the rent so much that the owners were unable to afford the increase. It appears that HU wants to use all the space in the Holyoke Ctr. for their own affiliates - Harvard Univ. Health Ser., Univ Press, etc. I don't know if Campo di Fiore plans to move somewhere else in the Square, but we can always hope.
