Sala By Fratelli's Is Saying Farewell to Its Space in Quincy

A dessert bar that is affiliated with a trio of pastry shops is shutting down, though it could be returning in some form at some point.

According to a source, Sala By Fratelli's in Quincy is leaving its Southern Artery space in June, with a Facebook post saying the following:

There are many factors that played a role in the difficult decision to pause and rethink our business plan. However, the biggest factor being, the space. Our lease has come to an end and resigning would not allow us to profitability expand how we envision. Although, we love our cozy & homey little setup, the current footprint is no longer suitable for our continued growth....The good news is we hope this isn't the end for Sala....We have lots of exciting potential ideas and opportunities including (but not limited to), possibly utilizing the very large space attached to our bakery, which we do own.... Whatever the future holds, it will take us some time to rethink, rework and renovate....In the meantime, we hope to incorporate some of the unique Sala concepts into Fratellis (more to come on that).

The post says that Sala will close on June 4, though private functions will go through end of the month. 

Sala By Fratelli's first opened in June of 2018, joining locations of Fratelli's pastry shops in Quincy, Weymouth, and Taunton; the dessert bar offers small plates, desserts, and drinks, including wine, cordials, cocktails, and coffee.

The address for Sala By Fratelli's is 470 Southern Artery Unit 2, Quincy, MA, 02169. Its website is at
