Summer restaurant vacations Galleria Umberto's for example

lc02139 Jul 3, 2013 07:31 AM

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??

    Shanghai Gate will be closed for vacation next week (7/30 through 8/6.)

        YoMa is closed for renovation (and, I hope, some vacation - those folks work hard!) for the month of July. Sign on their door says they'll be back in August.

          Toscanini's just sent out this tweet.

          "Tony Maws visited, fresh from success in Japan said that Craigie will close on Monday for ten days of kitchen repairs. New place is later."

          I called and the hostess confirmed it.

                        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.

                          Yes I knew it was coming up but depending on when the 4th falls some times it doesn't include the 1, 2, 3 :((

                            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.
