Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant and Cantina to Open in Watertown

A small group of Mexican restaurants continues to expand, with a new location coming to a space in Watertown where an Italian restaurant had been for more than 40 years until closing early last year.

According to one of our readers, a sign is now up for Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant & Cantina on Main Street in the center of town, with a Facebook post from the group of dining spots confirming this--and indicating that it will be moving into the former Verona Restaurant space. (The Facebook post, which was put up in late September, had said that the new location of Ixtapa was slated to open in mid to late October.)

[June 15, 2015 update: The Watertown location of Ixtapa has not yet opened, and Eater Boston states that it now might not be opening until August.]

[September 9, 2015 update: A new article from Eater Boston says that Ixtapa is now open in Watertown.]

Ixtapa recently opened a new location in Acton as well, joining others in Groton, Lexington, Lunenburg, and Woburn.

The address for this Mexican restaurant in Watertown is: Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant & Cantina, 18 Mount Auburn Street, Watertown, MA, 02472.
