Otto Pizza Is Opening in Brookline's Coolidge Corner
One year after a Portland, Maine-based pizza spot opened a branch in Cambridge's Harvard Square, it now looks like another location will be coming to the area, with this one being in Brookline.
According to The Brookline TAB and Wicked Local, Otto Pizza is planning to open a new outlet on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner, taking over the space where Friendly's Express used to be until closing last fall. The article mentions that the new eatery will be much like the Portland location, with seating for 60 and a menu that includes pizza with some rather eclectic options for toppings (butternut squash, pulled pork, mango, zucchini, white bean, etc.), salads, and desserts, and possibly beer and wine pending the acquisition of a liquor license.
A May opening is planned for the new Otto Pizza, according to the TAB.
