Upper Crust Goes to Auction Tomorrow, With Mystery Boston Restaurateur Involved


The bankrupt, scandal-ridden pizzeria goes to auction tomorrow, and more than 60 bidders want in. Trustees expect a "lively auction.” Among the bidders: Two former Upper Crust managers in conjunction with a "seasoned Boston restaurateur" who hope to buy two locations, one in Boston and another in the 'burbs.

Also among the interested is Shannon Liss-Riordan, the lawyer for the immigrant workers who were royally screwed over allegedly denied back wages by the company back in 2010. If she wins, reports the Globe, she plans to give employees ownership shares in the restaurant. Better late than never.
