Huge news for those of us who went to college in the Pioneer Valley: Amherst's Antonio's Pizza has plans to open a branch in Boston. They announced the news on Facebook this weekend, along with plans to open other locations in Lowell and Worcester. They're known for wacky toppings combinations that only a tipsy college student could love: Nutella, avocado quesadilla, potato bacon, beef taco, grilled calamari with spicy mayo (below), and my personal favorite, buffalo chicken bleu cheese.
People are already excited. "You've made my year!" one carb-hound glowed. "The day you open in Boston will probably be the greatest day of my life," someone else enthused.
How do you feel about Antonio's opening? And where should they open? For now, they're keeping quiet about plans, but my bet is Kenmore Square. Maybe where La Verdad used to be?
