Upper Crust Pizzera in Wellesley Is Reopening

It looks like one of the locations of a local group of pizzerias that recently shut down and went to auction will be reopening soon.

The Wellesley Townsman is reporting that the Upper Crust Pizzeria on Central Street in the center of town is on the verge of opening once again, with UC Acquisition (a private equity firm connected with Upper Crust founder Jordan Tobins) behind the eatery. The article mentions that it was possible that Upper Crust would open yesterday or today, but based on the snowstorm, it seems likely that the opening may be pushed back a bit. Diners can expect the original menu and recipes to remain in place, according to the Townsman.

Most locations of the Upper Crust Pizzeria chain abruptly shut down in November of 2012, with a subsequent auction for the restaurants taking place the following month. In addition to the Wellesley restaurant, UC Acquisition also acquired branches in Boston's South End, Watertown, and Lexington.

The address for this pizza spot in Wellesley is: Upper Crust Pizzeria, 99 Central Street, Wellesley, MA, 02482.
