A4 in Somerville Has Closed for Good
One of the highest-rated pizza spots in the Boston area has served its last pie, though the news is not all bad.
Eater Boston is reporting that A4 in Somerville has permanently closed, approximately three months after it had to shut its doors because of an electrical issue which caused the Somerville Avenue building to become unsafe, and which also forced the temporary (at this point in time) closure of Dosa N Curry. The article says that owners Michael Krupp and Jeff Pond will announce today that they have decided to end the lease there, stating that "indefinite delays" on repairs ultimately led to their decision, though they also say that they hope to find a new location somewhere in Somerville. In addition, as reported earlier here, their upcoming location of A4 at the Troy Boston apartment building in the South End of Boston is still in the works, though it is not known exactly when it will open.
The people behind Area Four in Cambridge's Kendall Square opened A4 Pizza in the summer of 2013, with the wood-fired pizza place receiving a good amount of praise in the press, including Boston Magazine recently awarding it best crust in the Boston area and Food & Wine Magazine including it in its list of best pizza places in the United States.
The address for the now-closed A4 is 445 Somerville Avenue, Somerville, MA, 02143.
