First it was Cafe 47, then it was 47 Pizza + Pasta, and now it's but a memory. At least for the time being. The Back Bay restaurant reports via Facebook that June 22 was its last day and says that the new owners "will reopen in the fall under a new name." Boston Restaurant Talk notes that the same space was once Despina's Pizza. Prior to closing the restaurant had cut back its hours, no longer serving Friday lunch or weekend brunch. "Thank you so much for your patronage and for all of the great times we had at 47 Mass Ave..." it says.
