Besito Is Opening in Burlington, Chestnut Hill, and (Possibly) Lynnfield
A trio of upscale Mexican restaurants in New York and Connecticut is expanding into the Boston area, with three slated for the suburbs.
According to a job post on the Craigslist site, Besito is planning to open in Burlington, Chestnut Hill, and Lynnfield, with its Pinterest page indicating that the outlets will be located at the Burlington Mall, the Mall at Chestnut Hill, and MarketStreet Lynnfield, respectively. Currently, locations of Besito can be found in Huntington and Roslyn (both in New York) and West Hartford, CT.
[Febraury 19, 2014 update: Besito tells us (via their Facebook page) that construction has begun on their Burlington location, with a spring opening planned. It appears that Chestnut Hill might not be too far behind, though there is no word on their Lynnfield location (and in fact that location is not mentioned on their website).]
[May 19, 2014 update: The Boston Globe is reporting that the new Besito in Burlington opens on June 17, while the Chestnut Hill location is looking to open later in the summer.]
[November 4, 2014 update: A source within the restaurant industry says that Besito in Chestnut Hill is opening this Friday (November 7).]
Besito offers such items as ceviche, flautas, tamales, enchiladas, carnitas, mole poblano, crusted mahi mahi, boneless short ribs, jicama, and plantains. It also has an extensive list of tequilas, with flights available.
