Coal-fired pizza is heading to Fenway, and Max & Leo's is now hiring ahead of its opening, according to a post on Craigslist. The restaurant is opening on November 16 inside Game On (82 Lansdowne St.), according to an employee at Game On.
Started by brothers Max and Leo Candidus, the restaurant has its original location in Newton. The Fenway location is now looking to hire a floor manager, doorman, host, barback, server, and food runner. Max & Leo's is known for its variety of coal-fired pizzas, plus a selection of nachos, wings, and salads.
Though there has been some debate over the legality of coal-fired pizza ovens in the city of Boston, Max & Leo's can proceed with their original concept cooking method, provided it follows specific regulations for operating its pizza oven.
