Update: Papagayo in Charlestown Has Closed; Management Team to Open Saugus Location

[Ed note: This article was updated on April 22 to reflect new information given.]

A local group of Mexican restaurants has just gotten a bit smaller.

According to one of our sources, Papagayo in Charlestown is now closed, with all of the signage for the City Square dining spot being removed, and a call to one of the other locations of Papagayo has confirmed that the Charlestown location is indeed no longer in operation. It is not known why the restaurant closed, nor is it known what might be going into the space at this point in time; as soon as we hear more, we will post an update here.

Papagayo first opened in Charlestown in the spring of 2013, replacing a location of Max and Dylans (which was under the same ownership). Currently, existing locations of Papagayo can be found at Fort Point in Boston, Downtown Crossing, and Assembly Row in Somerville, with a new one coming to Saugus as well.

[April 22 update: Eater Boston mentions that the closing of Papagayo in Charlestown is apparently more of a move, as the management team from the now-closed City Square location will be opening the upcoming spot at 819 Broadway (Route 1) in Saugus in late May or early June.]

[June 8 update: A new article from Eater Boston indicates that Papagayo opens in Saugus tomorrow (Tuesday, June 9).]

The address for the now-closed location of Papagayo in City Square is 1 Chelsea Street, Charlestown, MA, 02129. The website for the other locations is at http://www.papagayoboston.com/
