Blaze Pizza Opening in Boston's Fenway and Theatre District
Earlier this month, we reported that a group of California-based pizza restaurants with some big names involved was opening its first Boston-area location in Cambridge. Now we have learned that two more will be coming to Boston itself.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Blaze Pizza is planning to open shops at The Viridian apartment tower near Fenway Park and in CityPlace within the State Transportation Building in the Theatre District, joining another location that will be coming to One Canal Park near the CambridgeSide Galleria. It looks like the two Boston outlets will open in the summer, while the Cambridge shop will open this spring, though no specific opening dates have been given for any of them as of yet.
[May 8 update: Based on a licensing board page within the city of Boston website, the Fenway location of Blaze Pizza could be one step closer to opening by this week, as a hearing will take place concerning its application for a common victualler license on Wednesday, May 11.]
[September 26 update: Digital Journal states that Blaze Pizza opens its Fenway shop--which will be the first location within the Boston city limits--on Thursday, September 29. (The CityPlace outlet hopes to open sometime this fall.)]
[November 2 update: A Boston Licensing Board page indicates that Blaze could be one step closer to opening in the Theatre District by today (or tomorrow, as the city often makes decisions the day following a hearing), and the notice mentions that the new shop would include an outdoor patio.]
[December 20 update: Eater Boston says that Blaze Pizza has opened at CityPlace in the Theatre District, and the place will also be celebrating its opening on Wednesday with free pizza to anyone who follows the pizzeria on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.]
A few investors who are involved with Blaze include Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, author/journalist Maria Shriver, and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star LeBron James.
