The Just Crust to Open in Former Upper Crust Space in Cambridge's Harvard Square
One of the Upper Crust locations that recently went to auction is going to reopen under a new name, and the person behind it represented employees of the chain in a lawsuit.
The Harvard Crimson is reporting that attorney Shannon E. Liss-Riordan (who is a Harvard Law School graduate) plans to open The Just Crust on Brattle Street in the Harvard Square section of Cambridge, bringing to the area a pizzeria that will be partly owned by its workers and will "focus more on providing superior food and service than on merely turning a profit." The article says that Liss-Riordan teamed up with Haluk Ozek of Monella Boutique on Brattle Street to purchase the shop at an auction that was held last month, with Liss-Riordan possibly looking to purchase other locations of the Upper Crust chain in the future.
It appears that The Just Crust could be open by March, according to the Crimson.
[April 25 update: Cambridge Day mentions that The Just Crust is now hoping to open sometime in early May.]
The address for this upcoming pizzeria in Harvard Square is: The Just Crust, 49 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention.
