Update: La Posada Restaurante in Arlington Heights Is Closed

by Marc Hurwitz

A longtime favorite for Mexican food is locked up and dark, and it is not known for sure what is going on with the place.

According to a poster on The Arlington List Facebook group page, La Posada Restaurante in Arlington Heights is closed at least for the time being, with another poster showing a photo of a note inside the door of the Mass. Ave. spot. The note starts with "Dear Santa" and indicates that they want to be open again, thanking customers for their support and mentioning something about money apparently owed to "Fresh Pond Shopping Center," which could be a reference to a vendor there, though no explanation has been given. We are currently trying to get more details on the closing of the place, so keep checking back for updates.

La Posada is a spot that has been featured on our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) as an under-the-radar restaurant to go to for Mexican fare. The review can be found at the following link:

The address for La Posada Restaurante is 1312 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.

[January 9, 2018 update: The Arlington Advocate mentions that La Posada Restaurante remains closed and it is not known when it might open again, as its landlord (Fresh Pond Trust) is owed approximately $20,000 in back rent and they won't be able to reopen until that money is paid. (Thanks to a source for bringing this to our attention.)]

[January 22, 2018 update: The future of La Posada appears to be more in doubt now, as a LoopNet post indicates that the space is now for lease. (Thanks to a poster in The Arlington List Facebook group for bringing this to our attention.)]

[January 28, 2018 update: A check on La Posada confirms the update above, as "For Lease" signs are now in the windows of the place.]
