Summer restaurant vacations Galleria Umberto's for example

I saw it mentioned in another thread, but didn't see one for this years vacations.

Gallery Umberto's in the north end will be closed until the 29th. I found out the hard way by seeing the metal gate being down at 11 hoping to get an arancini.

Any more places that will disappoint when people show up??

      Update: I walked by today and a sign said Yumewokatare will be closed until 8/30. Looked like some repainting going on.

        Update 2: the sign has changed and now it says they are remodeling and hope to reopen in the fall. No date.

    2. I always forget about it too, but Umberto's vacation is the most notorious, I think.

      I know from walking by that Carlo's is closed for about a week for July 4th, and Bon Chon said they'd be closed for a few days.
