    Frozen Hoagies is Opening a New Location

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes ice cream sandwiches, a Route 1 closure and an asian sandwich shop. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019)

    A new pizza spot could be on its way to a red-hot section of Boston, and it would be opening where a gourmet market had been.

    According to a source, Da LaPosta is planning to open in the city's Fort Point neighborhood, taking over a part of the old Bee's Knees space on Farnsworth Street. Our source indicates that a public meeting on the proposed pizzeria is slated for October 7 at the former Bee's Knees site and that the place is seeking a liquor license, though little other information has been given as of yet.

    Bee's Knees shut down (and was seized by the state) around the beginning of 2017 and subsequently went up for auction; the market had also gone up for sale in late 2015 as well.

    The address for the proposed Da LaPosta is 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA, 02210.

    September 30 update: Eater Boston mentions that the person behind Da LaPosta is Mario LaPosta, who comes from the now-closed Babbo in the Seaport District and who has competed in the World Pizza Championship in Italy. The post says that the pizzeria, which will feature wood-fired pies, plans to open sometime in the spring of 2020.
