The Wellesley Select Board has on its meeting menu next week a common victualler license application from La Toscano Pizzeria at 99 Central St.
Update (1/19/22): The Board gave the pizzeria its blessing. The business comes from Paul Boucher, whose A New Leaf healthy food grocery has been operating in Needham since 2004. The new pizzeria in Wellesley will, in addition to pizza, offer salads, smoothies, and more during the day. Boucher hopes to open in March.
That space has been vacant since Upper Crust closed about two years ago.
Wellesley is readying for a restaurant rebirth. Newcomers in Wellesley Square will include Laughing Monk and Lockheart, along with whichever restaurant moves into the old Gap space that’s under renovation.
In Linden Square, Tatte readies for its move into California Pizza Kitchen’s former space, and word is that Oath Pizza could be moving into Roosters’ location (Roosters is sticking around, just moving around the corner in same complex).
