It looks like a Cuban restaurant in Belmont is going to be opening in Waltham.

According to a Twitter post from @Newswatch8 (via a YouTube video), Gustazo Cuban Restaurant & Cafe is planning to open on Main Street where a location of Elephant Walk used to be until closing last fall. A note was sent to Gustazo asking if their restaurant on Belmont Street was going to be moving into this space or whether it would be another location, but they have not responded as of yet (as soon as we get more information, we will post an update here).

[May 15 update: A note from Gustazo today confirms that this is a move, not a second location.]

[June 23 update: A Facebook post from the restaurant indicates that Gustazo has officially closed its Belmont location, with the new location in Waltham expected to open by mid-July.]

[November 11 update: According to a new note from the restaurant on its Facebook page, Gustazo opens its doors for lunch today--and will be adding dinner service next week.]
