On Monday, the staff of Cosmos Pizza and Grill didn’t turn on the lights or unlock the door.
The popular and long-standing restaurant on Marshall Street offered a single explanation on a sign on its door: “Closed today for funeral. We’ll miss you George.”
The Friday death of George Cannellos, co-owner and founder of Cosmos, adds a note of sadness to an important time in the restaurant’s history. Cosmos, which opened in 1963 and is among the oldest establishments on Marshall Street, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
