It looks like a landmark Revere Beach pizzeria may have found a new home.
According to a source, Bianchi's Pizza is planning to reopen in Lynn, with a licensing hearing page seeming to confirm this, saying that the now-closed JD's Sports Bar on Lewis Street is seeking to transfer its license to Bianchi's which would presumably be at the same location. The notice also mentions another item that our source tells us--that Marcos Tacos, which had been hoping to open at Revere Beach, may be looking to open in the former O'Brien's space on Boston Street. (Interestingly enough, the parent company of both spots is M&M Restaurants LLC.)
Bianchi's, which had been in business for nearly 70 years, left its home on Revere Beach Boulevard to make way for an apartment development that is being built at the site; the pizzeria subsequently moved its ovens to Renzo's just up the street where its pizzas continue to be offered.
December 23 update: A page on the Bizapedia site indicates that Julius Sokol and Matthew Gateman are behind the company; the former has been involved in the purchases of the buildings housing several Boston bars, including The Tam, Mary Ann's, the Beacon Hill Pub, and Sullivan's Tap, while a source tells us that the latter is related to the people involved with Renzo's. (The Manta site shows Jack Gateman being behind Renzo's.)
