Max and Dylans in Downtown Boston to Become Papagayo
Earlier this year we reported that a local restaurant group was changing one of its spots over from an American dining spot to a Mexican eatery, and now it looks like they may repeat this with another location.
The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting that Legendary Restaurant Group is going before the Boston Licensing Board on July 10 to request that Max and Dylans on West Street in downtown Boston be changed to Papagayo. A couple of months ago, the location of Max and Dylans in the City Square part of Charlestown became Papagayo as well, so if the board approves of the group's request, only one Max and Dylans will remain (in Bedford). The original Papagayo is located on Summer Street in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood, with another outlet planned for Assembly Row in Somerville next year.
[July 11 update: It looks like Legendary Restaurant Group has received approval to switch the Max and Dylans in downtown Boston over to Papgayo, as a new job post on the Craigslist site mentions that Papagayo is indeed coming to West Street, and that they are looking for workers.]
[July 23 update: Eater Boston states (via Zagat) that Max and Dylans in downtown Boston is now closed, with Papagayo possibly opening there in the next week or so.]
[July 31 update: A post on their Facebook page indicates that the new Papagayo in downtown Boston opens at 5:00 PM today.]
Legendary Restaurant Group also runs Scollay Square in Beacon Hilll, Sip and Avery Provision in downtown Boston, and Burger Dive in Somerville's Assembly Row.
The address for the new Papagayo in downtown Boston is 15 West Street, Boston, MA, 02111. The website for Legendary Restaurant Group can be found at http://www.legendaryrg.com/
