Otto Pizza Is Opening a New Location Near Boston University in Brookline
A Portland, Maine-based pizza spot continues to expand through the Boston area, with plans now in place for a new branch near Boston University.
Eater Boston is reporting that Otto Pizza is going to be opening on Commonwealth Avenue in Brookline (making this their second location in that town), taking over the space where a location of the Upper Crust Pizzeria had been until closing last month. The article mentions that the new outlet of the pizza spot will have a capacity of 50, and beer and wine will be available. Once it opens, this will be the third Otto Pizza in the Boston area, with the other two being in Cambridge's Harvard Square and Brookline's Coolidge Corner.
