Besito Plans to Open in Boston

Last year we reported that a trio of upscale Mexican restaurants in New York and Connecticut was looking to expand into the Boston area, with at least two locations coming to the suburbs. Now we have learned that another one might be coming to the city itself.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Besito is considering opening somewhere in Boston, joining soon-to-open outlets in Burlington and Chestnut Hill. The article mentions that restaurateur John Tunney III "plans to launch another Besito in Boston proper in the near future," though no specific location has been given. It appears that the Burlington branch will be the first to open in the area, with the Globe saying it plans to open at the Burlington Mall June 17, while the location at the Mall at Chestnut Hill could be opening later this summer. Another outlet had been planned for MarketStreet Lynnfield, though there is no word right now on whether that one will indeed be opening.

Currently, locations of Besito can be found in Huntington and Roslyn (both in New York) as well as West Hartford, CT. The website for Besito is at
