Boston Restaurant Talk reports the Kenmore Square Uno, the last of its kind in all of Boston, has served its last deep dish. Fans of whatever the chain keeps trying to push now instead of deep dish will have to just head on down to the Dedham Mall now (even their corporate HQ has moved out of town - from West Roxbury to Norwood). The chain has been in financial trouble for years, long before Covid-19.

Mural on wall of Pizza Stop in Brookline

You can work up an appetite driving sort of aimlessly around - especially if you forgot to eat lunch - so when we saw the Pizza Stop on Cypress Street in Brookline, we pulled over and went in - and were immediately struck by the large sorta-Lichtensteinish mural on one wall (especially impressive given that the whole place is really tiny).

Compare to the Phaeton legend painted on a wall at Nick's on Washington Street in Roslindale: Read more.
