Bartaco Opening in Boston's Fort Point Neighborhood

The group behind a pair of Spanish tapas spots in the Boston area will be bringing its other concept to the region.

According to a Twitter post from @DGoodison, bartaco has signed a lease to open in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood, with the Thomson Place eatery being known for its upscale street food with influences ranging from California to South America. Once it opens, the new restaurant will join locations of Barcelona Wine Bar in the South End and Brookline, whose parent company--Barteca---runs both concepts and is based out of Norwalk, CT.

bartaco offers such items as guacamole, tacos with such options as fried oysters, shrimp, pork belly, duck, and shrimp, rice bowls with many of the same taco fillings available, tuna poke, pork tamales, plantains, gazpacho, rotisserie half chicken, and more.

The address for this new restaurant in Fort Point is: bartaco, 25 Thomson Place, Boston, MA, 02210. The website for all locations of bartaco can be found at

[February 4, 2018 update: According to a source, bartaco could be one step closer to opening by next week, as a hearing on a liquor license transfer to the restaurant will take place on February 14. (Our source also mentions that the dining spot could have three outdoor patio areas.)]

[November 20, 2018 update: According to Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality Consulting, bartaco in Fort Point is on the verge of opening, with the place possibly opening its doors later this week (after Thanksgiving) or early next week.]

[November 21, 2018 update: Based on its social media posts, bartaco actually opened its doors last night.]
