A trio of eclectic dining spots that has a fourth on the way is now planning to open a fifth, with this one moving into the space where a burger spot owned by a celebrity chef had been.
The Daily Times Chronicle is reporting that The Friendly Toast is looking to open a new location in the former Bobby's Burger Palace space at the Burlington Mall. The article says that the dining spot plans to have seating for 120 and that it hopes to get a liquor license from the now-closed Rainforest Cafe, which had been located within the mall as well. Once it opens, the new location of The Friendly Toast will join others in Boston's Back Bay, Cambridge's Kendall Square, and Portsmouth, NH, and another one will soon be opening in Brookline's Coolidge Corner as well.
Bobby Flay first opened Bobby's Burger Palace in January of 2013, with the place closing its doors for good this past December; last month, we reported that a location of Davio's was eyeing the space, though the Daily Times Chronicle indicates that plans for that restaurant fell through, apparently due to lease obligations.
