Pita Pit in Brookline Has Closed
It looks like the Brookline location of a chain of sandwich places has closed its doors.
According to one of our readers, Pita Pit on Harvard Street (a short distance south of the Allston border) is no longer in operation; a phone call to the place seemed to confirm this, as the number has been disconnected. This was the only location of the chain in the Boston area, though a few other shops can be found elsewhere in New England--three in Amherst, one in Durham, NH, and one in Stamford, CT.
[February 24 update: The closing of Pita Pit has been confirmed, with the reader sending a photo showing a "Closed" sign out front. (The sign says "Thank you to all of our loyal customers.")]
The Canada-based Pita Pit focuses mainly on pita sandwiches, with the menu also including soups, salads, cookies, smoothies, and a few other items. The chain opened its first shop in Kingston, Ontario in the mid-1990s.
The address for this now-closed eatery in Brookline was: Pita Pit, 479 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.pitapitusa.com/
