Patsy's Pastry Shop in East Somerville Is Reopening
Last last month, we reported that an iconic pastry shop was going to be closing after nearly 50 years in business, though it was leaving the door open to a possible return. Now we have learned that this is indeed what will be happening.
Eater Boston is reporting that four days after shutting down, Patsy's Pastry Shop in East Somerville now has a sign up saying "We are closing for construction on May 4th. We'll reopen at this location when construction is complete." Previously, we had mentioned that although the Broadway shop was closing because a new structure with 19 apartment units was going to take over the space, co-owner Sal Ferrigno did say that they might consider reopening, and that they would have first crack at a ground-level space within the building that is set aside for retail.
Patsy's Pastry Shop first opened in 1968.
The address for Patsy's is 182 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02145.
