On behalf of the Prezza team, I want to sincerely thank the Boston Fire Department alongside the City of Boston for their unparalleled dedication and valiant efforts in ensuring the safety of our neighbors and minimizing any potential further damages to our restaurant. We are forever grateful for the services they provide. We hope to reopen our doors by Labor Day and also want to thank our family, friends and neighbors for their overwhelming support.
