Hi-Fi Pizza and Subs in Cambridge's Central Square Is Closing
It looks like a pizza place and sub shop in one of the busiest sections of Cambridge may be closing its doors after being in business for more than 40 years.
The Cambridge Chronicle & TAB is reporting that Hi-Fi Pizza & Subs on Mass. Ave. has shuttered, though a phone call placed by a source indicates that it remains open this afternoon and it is not known when (or if) the place is shutting down. As soon as we find out what the exact status of the place is, we will post an update here.
[March 13 update: It appears that Hi-Fi Pizza & Subs has indeed closed, as a check on the place last night showed that it was locked up and dark, and phone calls placed to the spot yesterday and today have gone unanswered.]
[March 21 update: A Twitter post from @honeybeejean gives further proof (via a note on the front of the place) that Hi-Fi Pizza & Subs is indeed closed for good.]
The Chronicle/TAB article says that the property manager was not willing to say whether Hi-Fi's lease was up, but the manager did say, however, that (again, if it is indeed closing) another restaurant would not be going into the space because it was not up to code and it would be too costly to maintain as an eatery (the manager mentioned that the exhaust system will be taken out).
The building in which Hi-Fi Pizza & Subs is housed was built in 1900, according to the article.
The address for this pizza place and sub shop in Central Square is: Hi-Fi Pizza & Subs, 496 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
