Portland Pie Co. Is Opening in Reading
It looks like a small group of pizza spots based in Southern Maine that features flavored dough is coming to a northern suburb of Boston.
The Reading-North Reading Patch is reporting that Portland Pie Co. is eyeing a location in Reading, though as of last month, they were only in the "information-gathering phase." If they do decide to open a new location in Reading, it will be on Haven Street, just east of the Reading commuter rail stop.
[June 19, 2013 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site (and confirmed by the restaurant's website), Portland Pie Co. has indeed opened on Haven Street in Reading, with opening day apparently being this past Monday.]
Portland Pie Co.first started out in Portland in 1997, eventually expanding into Scarborough and Westbrook, along with Manchester and Nashua, NH. The group of eateries offers dough with flavors such as beer, garlic, basil, and honey, with gluten-free options available. In addition to pizza, Portland Pie Co. also has salads, sandwiches, calzones, and pasta.
The address for this new pizza spot in Reading is 54 Haven Street, Reading, MA, 01867. The website for all of the locations can be found at http://www.portlandpie.com/
