Update: Yassou Is Opening in Former Capri Space in Arlington Heights

by Marc Hurwitz

[Ed note: This article was updated on September 17 to reflect new information on the upcoming dining spot.]

It looks like a new eatery is on its way to Arlington Heights, taking over the space where a pizzeria had been for a quarter century.

According to several sources, work is being done on the old Capri Pizza & Subs space in Arlington Heights, with a check on the Mass. Ave. storefront showing a sign out front that says "Closed Due to the New Opening." We hear from a few sources that the upcoming dining spot may be featuring gyros and that it will not be called Capri, though nothing has been completely confirmed as of yet.

Capri shut down twice over the past few years, including in early March of 2016 (briefly) and then again in March of 2017; it had previously been home to Charlie's Pizza.

The address for the former Capri Pizza & Subs (and the upcoming eatery) 1323 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.

[September 17 update: According to a poster on The Arlington List Facebook group page, the new restaurant going into the former Capri space will be called Yassou, with a check on the space indicating that the place will apparently be a Greek eatery, offering such items as gyros, souvlaki, spinach pie, and feta pie, while it also looks like it will serve pizza as well.]

[January 18, 2019 update: A new post on The Arlington List Facebook group page indicates  that Yassou plans to open on January 25.]

[January 25, 2019 update: A post on The Arlington List Facebook group page mentions that Yassou did not open today, instead opening tomorrow (Saturday, January 28).]
