Griddler's to Open New Location in Downtown Boston

It looks like a local restaurant group is opening a new dining spot in Boston, making this the second location of its quick-casual spot in Beacon Hill.

According to a job post on the Craigslist site, Boston Nightlife Ventures is planning to open a "second location to [their] fast casual division" and is currently looking to hire employees for the eatery. One place that BNV operates is Griddler's Burgers and Dogs which is a fast-casual restaurant, so it appears that a second location of Griddler's is on the way.

As soon as we have more information, we will post an update here.

[June 4 update: Eater Boston has confirmed that a second Griddler's is indeed coming to Boston, with a possible opening date being July 15 (though the exact address is still not known). In addition, EB says that two additional Griddler's are apparently on the way as well at some point.]

[December 4 update: An email sent this morning indicates that the new Griddler's will open at 134 Boylston Street, which is between Charles Street and Tremont Street across from Boston Common. The note mentions that the new location will have additions to its menu as well as a new design for the interior of the place, though the general concept will remain the same as that of the original. Expect a January opening for the new Griddler's. (Note: It has been confirmed that Griddler's will be taking over the space where a location of Four Burgers is.)]

[March 3, 2015 update: UrbanDaddy mentions that Griddler's is planning to open its new location on Boylston Street sometime next week.]

[March 4, 2015 update: According to a press release, the new Griddler's opens to the public on Monday, March 9.]

Griddler's first opened on Cambridge Street in December of 2011, taking over the space where The Federal (another BNV spot) had been. In addition to burgers and dogs, the dining spot also offers chicken sandwiches, salads, sides, and shakes. Its website can be found at
