Uno Fresco to Open in Stoneham

A Boston-based chain of restaurants that feature deep-dish pizza is planning to open a version of its fast-casual concept a few miles north of the city.

The Stoneham Independent is reporting that Uno Restaurant Holdings is going to be opening Uno Fresco in Stoneham, with the eatery taking over the space in the Redstone Plaza where Baja Fresh had been. The article implies that Uno Fresco may be similar to Uno Due Go, which Uno Restaurant Holdings opened in Boston's Downtown Crossing in the fall of 2011; both spots focus on lunch and lighter dinners (as opposed to Pizzeria Uno's menu, which features Chicago-style deep dish pizza), including such items as salads, panini, and pizza.

According to the article--which was posted last month--Uno Fresco could be opening in May or June.

[June 2 update: A press release sent indicates that Uno Fresco opens its doors on Wednesday (June 4); the release also says that this is the very first location of the new Uno Fresco concept, though it does seem somewhat similar to Uno Due Go.]

The address for this upcoming eatery in Stoneham is: Uno Fresco, 101 Main Street, Stoneham, MA, 02180.

Thanks to The Passionate Foodie for bringing this to our attention.
