The iconic Connecticut-based pizza chain has opened the doors to their North Shore location.
New Haven, Connecticut-based Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana (widely-known as “Pepe’s”), world-famous for New Haven-style pizzas since 1925, has officially opened their second Massachusetts location in Burlington. (their 11th location company-wide) at 75 Middlesex Turnpike in Burlington, Mass., on Monday, June 10.
Open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Pepe’s of Burlington will serve guests its signature pizzas they’ve enjoyed for years in 12”, 16”, and 18” sizes. Made with a unique combination of crunch, chew, and char, Pepe’s famous pies are only produced using Frank Pepe’s original recipe and the coal fired, hand-built brick oven he used in 1925. The oven built on site in Burlington is a brick-by-brick duplicate of that oven, including iron castings from the original mold.
Pepe’s of Burlington will serve guests its legendary pies, including the original White Clam Pizza, a combination crafted by Frank Pepe himself (fresh clams with grated cheese, olive oil, fresh garlic, and oregano), Spinach, Mushroom, and Gorgonzola (mozzarella and grated cheese), and Quattro Formaggi (crushed Italian tomatoes, mozzarella, asiago, goat cheese, and pecorino with olive oil and basil). Guests will also be able to enjoy a traditional Pepe’s Salad (seasonal greens, grape tomatoes, cucumber, shredded red cabbage, Kalamata olives, Pecorino Romano cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette) or Caesar Salad, along with a selection of red and white wines by the glass or carafe. Non-alcoholic beverages, such as Foxon Park soda, and an assortment of imported and domestic craft beer will also be offered.
“We couldn’t be more excited to grow our presence in Massachusetts and continue to share our family tradition of serving fresh, high-quality pizza with both the residents of the Burlington area and mall shoppers from near and far,” said Gary Bimonte, grandson of Frank Pepe and Director of Quality Assurance & Training. “We look forward to providing our guests with an authentic Pepe’s experience!”
