Another Monmouth restaurant has closed abruptly.

There's now one less option for brick oven pizza. Bertucci's on Route 35 has closed their doors. This message was posted in their window:

We are thankful to you, our loyal guests, for giving us the opportunity to serve you. It's with great appreciation and gratitude that we say thank you for all the years.

I wish I could tell you something exciting was taking Bertucci's place, but according to Patch, it's going to be a Costco gas station. Actually, now that I think about it, Costco does often have some of cheapest gas. Costco Wholesale is located in the same shopping center as Bertucci's.

If you're craving Bertucci's pizza, you'll have to travel south and west. Other New Jersey locations include Mt. Laurel, Sicklerville, and Marlton.
