Wahlburgers Is Opening 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.]

[May 7, 2015 update: It appears that the upcoming Wahlburgers in Lynnfield is getting close to opening, as a press release says it will debut in "Q2" of this year, which presumably means by or before the end of June--and it also means this will indeed be the second location, as an upcoming one in Boston's Fenway neighborhood won't be opening until "Q3."]

[June 12, 2015 update: According to The Passionate Foodie, the Lynnfield location of Wahlburgers opens today at 11:00 AM.]

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.
