Thanks to a reader for sending word that it looks like Upper Crust Pizzeria has closed downtown. We judged them back in June 2011. While their website is still live, there voice mail has not been updated since April. The reader also sends a link to a Boston Herald story that says:
The Upper Crust pizza chain has shuttered 10 of its restaurants in the Bay State and Washington, D.C. as the struggling eatery, which is going through bankruptcy, tries to preserve cash flow and stay open long enough to attract a buyer.
DeGiacomo said an infusion of funds totaling $120,000 would get the restaurants back up and running and allow 170 workers, including several part-time employees, to get their jobs back.
