Penguin Pizza May Be Expanding to Dorchester
It looks like an award-winning pizzeria in Boston's Mission Hill/Brigham Circle neighborhood may be opening a second location in another part of the city.
The Dorchester Reporter states that Penguin Pizza is planning to expand to Dorchester, moving into a proposed development on Mass. Ave. just north of Edward Everett Square. The dining spot, which would have approximately 70 seats, would be housed in one of two residential buildings slated to be constructed on/around the site where the Express Motors used car dealership had been, according to an earlier article from the Reporter. The new location of Penguin Pizza probably won't be opening for awhile, as construction isn't expected to start on the complex until June of 2017.
The original Penguin Pizza, which is located on Huntington Avenue, has received much praise over the years, with The Improper Bostonian awarding it best restaurant in the Mission Hill area while CBS Boston included the place among its 2014 picks for best pizza and beer.
