A whole building on the outskirts of Somerville's Union Square is currently blocked off by caution tape, including the entire sidewalk in front of it, and the door to each business is barricaded with a sawhorse. A4 Pizza (445 Somerville Ave.) and Dosa N Curry (447 Somerville Ave.) are part of the building.
A4 has been shut down since yesterday and released a statement today:
"A4 Pizza in Union Square Somerville is temporarily closed for business due to a utility issue in the neighborhood. We apologize for any inconvenience and we will reopen as soon as possible. Thank you for bearing with us and we will be back and better than ever. Please keep checking back [on social media — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram] for more information."
Dosa N Curry cannot be reached for comment at this time; the restaurant's phone goes straight to voicemail, and the mailbox is full. However, Foodler indicates that Dosa N Curry is closed for delivery and takeout orders today and tomorrow, both days when it would normally be open.
The building also contains a salon and some apartments.
