All Star Pizza Bar in Cambridge's Inman Square to Expand to Boston's Beacon Hill
The people behind a sandwich place and a pizza spot in Cambridge will be opening a second location of their pizzeria in Boston.
Eater Boston is reporting that Kosta and Johnny Diamantopoulos of All Star Sandwich Bar and All Star Pizza Bar in Inman Square plan to open a new location of All Star Pizza Bar on Cambridge Street in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood, with the eatery moving into the space where a location of Griddler's Burgers and Dogs had been until closing in June. (Another location of Griddler's on Boylston Street across from Boston Common remains in operation.) In the spring of 2014, we mentioned that the Diamantopoulos brothers were looking to open a restaurant somewhere in Boston, though at the time it was not known exactly when or where.
If all goes as planned, the new location of All Star Pizza Bar could open within the next few months, according to EB.
The address for the upcoming location of All Star Pizza Bar is 204 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA, 02114. Its website can be found at http://www.allstarpizzabar.com/

(The hearing on the license takes place on Thursday, November 17.]
[December 1 update: Boston Magazine states that the new All Star Pizza Bar opens in Boston's Beacon Hill on Friday. December 9, though it will also be handing out free pizza to customers on Thursday, December 8.]
