July Vacations/Renovation Closings
I'm working on a piece on the traditional July Vacations and renovations in area restaurants.
Here are a couple to get us started, but I'd love to include what the rest of you have seen or discovered.
Flour Bakery & Cafe on Washington is closed for renovations-"reopening on 7/8 at 7am."
Hamersley is closed closed until July 7th.
Pho Basil on Mass Ave is closed today and tomorrow and they could use a few visits from lovers of good food to keep them busy until the Berklee students return.
553 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116
Flour Bakery + Cafe
1595 Washington St, Boston, MA
Pho Basil Restaurant
177A Massachusetts Ave, Boston, MA 02115
Based on past years some possible July vacations include Royal Pastry in Cambridge (usually just a week around 7/4), Izzy's (longer vacation), Courthouse (usually very brief around 7/4). I think the Snack Bar usually takes some time in August (two weeks??) and like Umberto's they sometimes raise prices when they come back.
72 Spring St, New Bedford, MA 02740
Drove by Carlo's Cucina in Allston yesterday and they were renovating or something (no tables, just ladders). Sign in the window unreadable from car. No one is answering the phone and the web site has no information. Maybe someone who walks by there and can read the sign could update us.
