Wahlburgers to Open in Lynnfield
It looks like a second location of a burger restaurant from one of Boston's best-known families is coming to the local area.
On last night's episode of the A&E show Wahlburgers, a new outlet of the Hingham eatery by the same name is being planned for Lynnfield. It appears that the dining spot, which is run by chef and restaurateur Paul Wahlberg and his celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie, could be opening at MarketStreet Lynnfield, based on chatter that we have heard over the past few weeks. (MarketStreet Lynnfield is going to enter into a "Phase 2" of building at some point, which will include more restaurants and shops for the open-air complex.)
[March 3 update: The Boston Globe has confirmed that the new Wahlburgers will indeed open at MarketStreet Lynnfield, based on what a rep told them.]
[February 2, 2015 update: A job post within the Craigslist site indicates that the upcoming location of Wahlburgers in Lynnfield may be getting relatively close to opening, as it is now hiring restaurant managers. It is not yet known whether this will be the second or third location to come to the Boston area, as another one in Boston's Fenway neighborhood is slated to open at some point.]
Wahlburgers first opened at the Hingham Shipyard in October of 2011, with Paul Wahlberg also being behind another restaurant at the complex called Alma Nove.
Thanks to Food Service Advisor for initially bringing this to our attention.
