Walloon's Opening Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant on Route 1 in Peabody
Yet another Boston-area food truck is expanding into the brick-and-mortar business, and its restaurant will be located on an infamous stretch of highway.
According to a message from @CappyinBoston, Walloon's is planning to open on Route 1 in Peabody, moving into the space where The Nest had briefly been. Based on its truck offerings, the new dining spot will focus on fried chicken--possibly chicken sandwiches, which is what the truck offers--and perhaps fries as well (the truck had originally been focusing on hand-cut, twice-fried pommes frites until recently). A Twitter post from the spot indicates that the brick-and-mortar restaurant may be opening in October.
[October 16 update: A press release sent today indicates that the brick-and-mortar location of Walloon's now plans to open during the second week of November.]
[November 13 update: According to a Facebook post from the place, the brick-and-mortar location of Walloon's is now open. (Thanks to @CappyinBoston for bringing this to our attention.)]
Walloon's truck first hit the streets of Boston last August.
The address for the new restaurant from Walloon's is 108 Newbury Street (Route 1) Peabody, MA, 01960. Its website can be found at http://www.eatwalloons.com/
