Is it just us or does it seem a little bit like the openings and closings of our great city’s restaurants have fallen into a bit of an update-filled week/slow week pattern? We’ve got a grand total of three pieces of news today and two of them involve closings. Sigh.
•The Newton TAB Blog reports that a branch of Fitchburg-based mini-chain Parrot Pizza has set up shop in West Newton. The site advertises a “unique menu”, which…eh. It looks like pretty standard kid-friendly fare to us.
•It seems that the Chowhound we mentioned last week who asked if The Spotted Apron was no longer was on to something. The restaurant has closed, although rumors of a relocation continue to abound.
•The unfortunately named Trani has closed its doors. No longer shall ice-cream-infused cupcakes be available to North End residents! A second location of Bacco will open in its space.
